Some reasons I bought a K5...

Grab shots with whatever light the sun offered. Tamron 17-50 if you must know or care.

I'm coming from a *istDL and kit (with an M8 chaser) so working this beast is a bit of an uphill climb. I don't like the AF switch on the back (I keep kicking in the LV, bleech!) and the SD card slot is poorly designed for card removal (I have average hands/fingers and it's a pain!). The complexity continues to confound but I'm working though it and find that I like spot AF over the 11 point system (RF throwback?). I want to shoot video but ummm AF? What were you thinking Pentax???? Yeah I know not everyone has SDM or an external mic to avoid focus noise.

I had some initial buyer's remorse but I think I'm past that and will HTFU and get with the program!

Thanks for looking and listening...
