New member here, just wanted to say Hello. I've just moved up from a manual MX to a K5 and, to say the least, it's definitely different.
Regards, Sam

It's a big leap, I'm on a steep learning curve. Thanks for the welcome. Just posted three test shots here on the Pentax Lenses forum.

Thanks. Isn't Woking where McClaren F1's factory is located?

Yep - in a straight line it's about 1.5 miles from where I live. The factory is built on the edge of Horsell Common which is where the Martians first landed in H.G. Wells story "The War of the Worlds".

The K5 is a fine camera. After a while, your fingers will do things by themselves but just try to learn one item t a time! Welcome to this friendly group.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass
