Welcome to the clubhouse!

I'm sure there are some great subjects in Turkey. The K5IIs is a powerful and flexible camera, you'll have fun learning.
Personally, I like TAv mode - set the aperture so you have good sharpness or depth of field, then adjust the shutter speed to keep ISO in a comfortable range. Very quick with the two wheels, you never have to take your eye from the viewfinder.

Share some pictures when you have some you like, I'd love to see them.

First, i want to thank all of you for your warm greetings. I think Pentax K- IIs is great machine, too. But i both work and study for Master degree, so i don't have much time to shoot. I'll share photos in time.
