Hi everyone!

Greetings from southern Illinois! I just got a k5 11s and learning how to use it. Can't wait to start shooting as soon as weather gets a little better. I just upgraded from using a Panasonic bridge camera. My question is what are your most used lens size? I'm interested in getting a prime lens.

Welcome, remember to post some images here on the forum once you get shooting.

Welcome. The dynamic range of the K5 cameras is legendary.

Over 14 EV range at iso80 is actually better than full frame.

Enjoy the great camera.

Welcome to the Forums! Congratulations on your K5IIs! That is the next camera on my "wish" list! Right now, I only have zooms (with one macro primary), so I am of no help with choosing primaries. However, there are many here that will gladly assist you!

Good shooting, and let's see some photos!
