Great place to be now that things are warming a bit. Where on the coast are you? I am about 18 miles inland from Belfast, and waiting expectantly for my K-50 to arrive.
Ah! the sticks! I owned a farm in Palermo for many decades!

You will enjoy the K-50. I have a good pal who owns one. What do you hope to shoot first?

I have been looking at everything as I drive around thinking about what might make a decent picture but I want to get good wildlife photos. I went a bit crazy on the auction site for lenses but I got three manual focus lenses to work with as well as the two kit lenses 18-55mm and 50-200mm.
I have a Tokina 500mm RMC arriving Monday for the Eagles here on Lake St. George, (crazy impulse buy!) But I figure on using the kit lenses and a Ricoh XR Rikenon 50mm 2.0 for the birds at the feeder on my porch. At least until I start getting decent results. Then maybe the Tokina and the 135 Asahi Pentax SMC that should arrive soon.
I think I may have gone overboard with lens purchases but they looked really nice and were good prices! Now I just need a decent way to carry them all.... and a external flash or two, some more memory cards, monopod....that's all I can think of now. I may have destroyed my budget for all eternity.
