Hello from Ottawa Canada

Hello Pentax forum users. I am new to this forum and new to Pentax. I had been a Police Forensic Identification Crime Scene Specialist in Ottawa for 10 years and as such photography (film) was a big part of my job. Since being promoted and transferred in 2002 I had pretty much ceased all photographic activity with just a Pentax Optio point and shoot to fill the void. Well, with trips to Curacao, Australia and Fiji along with a 7 week assignment to the Vancouver Olympics all in the next 6 months I thought there was no better time than now to re-acquaint myself with photography. So, I bought myself a Pentax K-7 with the 18-55 mm WR lens and so far I love it, but have ordered volumes 1, 2 and 3 of Scott Kelby's digital photography how-to guides and the Magic Lantern Guides: Pentax K-7 edition to help me. I haven't received them yet but am eager to do so as I find I have forgotten a lot of the principals of photography (although I'm hoping it'll all come back to me soon). Next purchases are going to be a flash unit and a fast 50mm lens so if any one has any advice on those purchases I'm all ears.
