Decision to move to Pentax justified

I gave up my Canon 5D mkII rig to move to the Pentax K-5. My reasons were the sensor, Pentax lens design/reputation and of course Weather Sealing. On my recent vacation, I had to climb wet mountains and wade through creeks to get the images I needed, and it felt good to have a lighter, weather sealed camera that I trusted to get the images I needed. Never before would I have worked in such unfriendly conditions lugging a tripod, camera and lens around. It was a blast!

In the end, a camera system is a tool, but when you find a tool you can both trust, and emote with in one package, your confidence in your results increases greatly!

Looking forward to more adventures with my Pentax system!

This is a very special image to me. All of my life as a photographer I have wanted to capture an image like this. Its been basically a very personal quest of mine.
