Re: I have arrived in the Pentax camp

Hi Everybody

I shoot with a Nikon D300s, mostly surf sports, nature and wildlife and b.i.f. Last year I went on a trip to Germany and Japan and took that lumpy and heavy D300s with me (with the 16-85vr only). I won't schlepp such a camera onto my travels ever again. So I was looking for something smaller and lighter but with affordable high quality. There are competent small systems around these days although most of them lack the flexibility and ergonomics that I am looking for. Pentax is not exactly a 'limelight' system but when they came out with the K5IIs I suddenly became very interested and had a look into their lens offerings. The DA Limited prime range looks very promising to me. I read all the reviews I could find and I am confident that the K5IIs is a very capable APSC/crop camera and mine is on the way together with the DA 40mm f/2.8 Limited and the Da 21mm f/3.2 Limited. If the promises hold I'll expand on Pentax. I am excited. Cheers
