Default First Few Week With K-5

I figured I would post a few photos taken with my K-5. I must say I'm very impressed with the camera. I got it right after Thanksgiving and have been enjoying it since. I haven't posted for sometime. Darn work and other commitments alway's seem to get in the way. I do however alway's check in and enjoy everyones comments and photos. A little history on how I got to where I'm at. I started with digital photography with the K-20 and really enjoyed the camera. Like most the K-7 came along and I tried to convince myself I'll wait. Last Fathers day rolled around and Amazon had a good deal so I caved in to temptation and bought it. My daughter was still shooting film at college and I decided to give her my K-20. I now could justify buying the K-7. After Pentax announced the K-5 I just couldn't help myself. I bought it on a whim and I'm glad I did. It's all that and more.

Very nice shots -- all of them. I especially like the grass (sedge?) against the pine tree and sky, and the elk. What lens (or lenses) did you use for these.

Beautiful shots, Stevie!
The more I see and hear of this camera, the more I want one.
Good to see you back.

I love the first one with the chain, dof is perfect. So is the reflection. And that's some rack on the elk. There's a lot more to the window picture than you first notice, it's very nice. You are not helping my CBA especially when it's going to be a while before I can get one. Of course, the photographer has a whole lot to do with these pictures, the camera just helps. Well done!

Love those first two shots especially - all are very nice shots.

Yes it would be nice to know which lenses were used - I downloaded and checked but the Exif is missing.

Not helping my CBA either - the color contrast in several of these these is impressive. Nicely done.

Thanks for the kind comments. 1,4,6 taken with FA43mm limited, All the others with the DA 15 limited. Yeah I know the Elk with a 43mm, It's a long story and it will not happen again. You can get the EXIF data and view larger sizes from my flickr site.
