Couldn't stay away from Pentax!

Hi, My names Jason and I'm based on the East coast of England.
I've had a few Pentax cameras in the past, KS-2, K-70 and K-3ii but left the Pentax line up last year when I wen over to using Fujifilm Mirrorless cameras.
But I just couldn't stay away!
I missed the tactile feel and joy of using a Pentax DSLR, so I have picked up a K-5 with a couple of lenes. ( 18-55mm DA AL & a Sigma 70-300)
Looking forward to enjoying my return to the system and experiencing the quality of the 16 mega pixel sensor.

I'd say welcome back, but it seems in your heart you never really left. Let's just call it "some time apart to reflect", and say no more about it, eh?

Enjoy your new-to-you K-5. I still use mine occasionally... it's a superb camera

A trial separation, perhaps? I'm glad it didn't end up in a messy divorce

I feel the same. No other tactile feel is quite like Pentax, and to boot, IMO, Pentax cameras have the most intuitive layout of navigation buttons/dials for beginners and advanced users alike.

Hi everyone!

Thanks for the welcome :-)
I've also got myself a K-S2 (Couldn't afford the K-70 sadly)
I've added to my lenses as well.
Now I have the... 18-135 ED AL, 50mm f1.8 DA, 35mm f2.4 DA and the Samyang 14mm f2.8

Looking forward to getting some starry landscapes with the O-GPS1 module as well :-)

Happy shooting!
Jason

I also used the K-5. It is capable of excellent images.
