Hi,
I have been using Pentax cameras and lenses for 50 years. I don't have a digital Pentax, but have many vintage film cameras and lenses.
Welcome to the forum!

You won't be disappointed. The K5 is a fantastic camera. If you need help with any of the settings once you have it, feel free to shout out.

Hello All, I am a photobug, Leica M10 and Q user. I grew up using film cameras. I have always wanted to get back into the film system and have my eye on the Pentax 67. I have seen lots of them available on Ebay most saying that they are mint or near mint condition. For a little advice to this newbie, what are the first things you would warn me about? Any other advice or suggestions are welcomed. Again, thanks in advance.

I would recommend that you start your own thread in the medium format forum:

All lenses except the new HD 55-300 WR ED PLM will work on your K-5. I have one of those caemra's too and love the idea that I can shoot the ISO at 80, great choice you made.


And welcome to the forum.

WIthout adapters, any k-mount lens will work on your camera, except for the one lens mentioned by photolady. With an M42 adapter, you can use most older screw thread mount Pentax lenses too.
