Hello from the great white north. I followed this website when I pined for an DSLR in school. I knew I loved the robustness and speed and small size of the pentax system. I've captured shots with my MF lenses that rival my brother's system worth 3-300x more! I also can take my camera out way more taking photos he never would, scared of his heavy bulky pricy camera getting on the way or getting abused. Discrete, fast, backwards compatible glass, economical, robust, Pentax has made me a happier photographer.

Welcome to the forum, you may also find the WR a useful feature to have too.

You clearly have an advantage in that you seem to get out more, and that is, after all, where the magic happens!

You will appreciate Pentax in the North Country. I lived for 35 years just south of you in MN and WI. Weather/Cold resistance of Pentax was a big plus.

Ignore the naysayers, Pentax is a great system.

Welcome aboard, you picked the right brand for outdoor activities. Get a sling strap, though, they're more secure and comfortable.

Welcome to the forums. As people mentioned, compact size and WR with great IQ make for a nice outdoors system, so good choice!
