Howdy from California - K5iis First Dip Into Pentax

Hello all. Figured I'd take the opportunity to introduce myself as I look forward to learning, sharing, and conversing with you all as I am new to Pentax.

Background - I am an avid hobbyist who has primarily shot with Canon most of my life from film to digital. Over the last 2.5 years, I have also taken on a Fuji kit which I love and use for basically 90% of my shooting nowadays. I also had a 4 month period of owning and shooting a Sony a7r which is no longer with me. I've only had the k5iis in my possession for several days, but I'm already certain it is a keeper (hence my registering here).

Welcome to the forum. Join the California group to find out if we will be getting together.
Most of our activities occur in So Cal though.

Will do, crewl1.

Danny - I'm in Bakersfield. Originally from San fernando.

Alamo - here's one of the two I posted to the soviet lens thread yesterday. Haven't had a chance to get out and shoot a whole lot yet. Will definitely be following up with more.

Thanks, Kerrowdown. Definitely enjoying it. Always fun to run a new system and figure out how to get the most out of it. Still in the crawling stage at the moment though
