You can always "dabble" back in when Pentax introduces their mirrorless cam since it will probably be a new mount like all EVILs anyway :P

Hi Jehan,

You've been a great contributor here and your posts will be missed. You've made some friends here, and the brand of camera you shoot doesn't change that.

Best wishes for future success in your photographic pursuits.

The part of the camera world that argues over gear is silly to say the least. My photographer friends own all kinds of different brands and we rarely discuss "what camera are you using." What lens for what shot and techniques, both shooting and processing, yes. In the end, it's whatever works for you and your pocketbook can afford. Good luck and good shooting.

As others have said, you have to go with the camera system that works best for you. I have learned much from your comments and I'm sure others have too. I hope you'll check in here regularly and comment.

Wow...all of you are making this hard on me (in a good way!). I have learned much from sharing my images within the Pentax forum. Unfortunately, the Nikon forum on Steve's tends to focus on problems with gear and other technical issues. This forum on the other hand is more of a show and tell and learn from each other forum. Which is precisely why I'll plan to continue hanging out here. I believe the Pentax and the Olympus forums are the only two that have such a friendly and loyal bunch! Truth be told, I hardly visit the Nikon forum at all.

Thanks for all the nice things said...actually I should be thanking all of you for making me a better photographer. I appreciate you letting me hang out here even though I don't own any Pentax gear any more. I will miss being able to post images here though...let's see how long I last


p.s.I like Bluenose's idea to use some black tape with Pentax written in white taped over the Nikon name

While I love my Pentax gear, I'm well aware of it's limitations. And if those limitations finally get to you, it's time to change. I think Pentax has addressed the noise issue with the K5, but think the AF might still be behind. And besides, Nikon has much better flash capabilities. So enjoy your new equipment and have a great time expanding your capabilities as a photographer.

Jehan - so glad for all the images and good advice you have shared here. Whatever equipment/tools you use, you will produce great photos! Hope you will continue to "drop by" again from time to time...

Go with what works best for your needs. But don't be a stranger here, I'm sure people here would still like to hear from you and see some of your latest photos. Your still part of a friendly community in my opinion, no matter what gear you are using.
