Hello, sorry, this is just a quick post as I'm halfway through replying at the marketplace! I'll introduce myself better later. New to forums and new to Pentax

---------- Post added 05-04-16 at 08:48 AM ----------

Ah, well, like I said, I am very new to forums, sorry for the awkward introduction! I've only recently bought a Pentax k-5 (after months of agonising over what camera to buy!) and am really really happy with it. It's fantastic to have this forum at hand - the amount of time I've spent browsing through the threads (whilst I should have been studying!) is ludicrous. I very much enjoy photography, although I'm rather new to that too. I look forward to being part of this community!

Welcome and congrats on the new camera. You might want to check the firmware version on your camera as I believe Pentax issued several updates that improved functionality.

I will absolutely do that, thanks so much for suggesting! It's 1.13, so I have some updating to do.

Welcome to the forums. I used to have two K-5s. It is a really nice camera.

Thank you all for such a warm welcome! I'm sure I'll upload some images as time goes on. I have a two month trip round the West Coast planned for after I graduate this summer, so there better be some good photos from that
