Hi Guys, I am a new member from Spain,
Recently bought a mint K5 and I am really enjoying learning about DSLR photography but also how diverse this camera is, currently shooting with a Pentax F1.8 50mm and the kit lens 18-55mm, mainly shooting in AV and M mode and loving it. I have ordered a couple of old Tokina lenses and a 2x teleconverter to play around in manual focus mode with. As the K5 has built in stabilisation it should be fun.
Regards to all.

Welcome to the forum. Enjoy the K-5. It is a very nice APS-C model camera.

Welcome to the Forums. Enjoy that K-5 and your new lenses. But don't expect anything too outstanding from the 2X teleconverter. They are fun to play with (I have one) but getting good results is a challenge.
