Pentax has been great since K1000 for outdoor and rough and tumble and still is. Enjoy the very friendly and knowledgeable forum

Welcome to the forum. You'll find the Pentax gear an excellent fit for those Michigan out door activities .

If you haven't done so already- take an opportunity to research how to recognize which lens designations include what level of weather sealing protection.

Ohh, and I recommend to be just a little cautious around Pentax oriented resources such as the forum- because although some people may complain that the Pentax stable doesn't have a very large lens selection, I find that they have quite a few choices that could easily prompt LBA lens buying addiction.
