Old Pentax user, new to the world of DSLR.

Hello,

I'm Simon and I'm from Poland. I have used several Pentax film SLR and now I became an owner of the K-5 II. I'm very happy to see Pentax community is that big

Welcome aboard. I think you find with your K-5 II that Pentax is still producing quality products.

Welcome. You will find a wealth of information on here and a lot of people willing to help you make the transistor. I myself made a similar journey this last year. It may take a little while but I think you will really like your new camera once you have a chance to practice with it.

I always suggest that old film guys take a look at the TaV mode as it is the most similar to using the film cameras that were either manual or manual with auto aperture.

Since I am an old film guy, I can echo this advise. TAV is a wonderful mode, but do keep an eye on the ISO you are being taken to.

Welcome, film is still going, but digital does have some advantages.... The K5II is a great body to start with - an excellent sensor.

Thanks for all the advice. The K-5 II is my first DSLR in terms of ownership, although because I study journalism on a university I have worked with many DSLR's. I chose the K-5 II because it was the best Pentax I could afford now. From the moment I was born there was always a Pentax camera in house. As a kid I played with small A110, throwing it, hitting it against the floor, and it's still making photos today. And that's why my own DSLR simply had to be a Pentax.
