Default Finally pushed the button........

Well, did it this morning. I have a K5 on the way to my doorstep. Should arrive Thursday. Hopefully the weather holds up this weekend to go out with it some.

Congratulations Patty! And just in time for foliage season.

Of course, you're making it that much more difficult for me to resist the K5's siren song!

Be sure to post some photos when it arrives.

Great news! I think you'll really love the camera. Read the manual while you are spending hours charging the battery, the interface is quite a bit different than the K20 and I found it a bit disconcerting when I first got the K7. Now I love it and miss it when shooting with the K100.

Post pictures when you get it.

Great news, I am hoping to get a new modern Pentax while I am still earning a good salary. Perhaps a K5 will be in my future as well.

Can't wait for your first images.

Thanks everyone.

There might be a slight delay in getting it in my hands. Do I take the day off from work tomorrow so I can be home to sign for it? Do I take my chances that they'll let my neighbor sign for it? Or, hope my son will be home when they come? Do I go ahead and take the note they leave and tell them for Friday's 2nd attempted delivery to just bring it back to the base station and we'll pick it up on Monday? Noooooooo. Still torn. How patient can I be?
