Not a Pentax digital user...yet. Still use my MX now and again. Currently using 4/3rds gear (not that the gear matters too much tbh). Thinking about biting the bullet on a K5II as body only prices are pretty good here in the UK.

Trained as a pro in the 80's (City & Guilds) and worked as a staffer for a large blue-chip (mix of Nikon and Hassie in house gear), now shoot for me and the odd referral Re: ports, weddings and commercial.

Welcome. The K5 in all iterations is a great camera, and as you note the prices are obscenely low. Good luck!

Welcome. The K5 is an awesome camera, it is so pleasing to the hand, is so well designed and made that it brings a thrill every time I use it. The high ISO performance is amazing. I have both that and the K3, which I also love. You won't be disappointed. Hope you go for it.
