Hi from SoCal

Hi all,

I've been a long-time lurker as I waffled over switching brands, but I just took the plunge and ordered a K-5iis to take advantage of the huge discounts right now. I expect to look for advice on the move from Oly, especially for lenses, shortly. For the time being, I added the 18-135 to take advantage of the weather-sealing (I'm pretty excited about this). I'm never an early adopter, I can't bring myself to pay full price for anything, and I've been extremely pleased with my used lens pickups (even vintage OM glass) for that system. The lore of great Pentax glass is exciting, but I haven't been able to start sorting out all the intricacies (especially the naming conventions) yet. I'm looking forward to tapping into all the great information in this community even more now, especially because I'll soon be able to see the rewards for myself!

Ryan

Welcome to the forum, if your that way inclined, there is some really fine Pentax legacy glass out there for your camera. Take the time to enjoy finding what you need as well as capturing your images.
