Default Took delivery of my new K5

Well, I received my K5 yesterday late in the day. So far everything seems fine. Auto focus even in light lit by a 75 watt bulb seems really good. I really can't believe how well the high ISO performs. Totally acceptable at 2000. I'm sure in many situations 6400 would be fine. Can't wait to check out the dynamic range. This camera will probably last me for years. Tomorrow I'll try my 55-300 DA Lens. Now to get all my settings right. Now the TAv mode is actually useful.

Have a great time checking it out. I know what you mean about the ISO, the only problem I have with TAv is that I sometimes forget to change it back to something semi-automatic and have over or underexposed shots when I've changed locations and the TAv settings won't provide a correct exposure. Don't forget to post some samples!
