Default 1st Day with K-5--Flowers with Pentax 18-135

Out playing with my new camera this afternoon, I stopped by a flowerbed at a local park. Lots of variety in colors and textures.







All shots taken with the K-5 and the Pentax 18-135 WR.

Love the second one (how do you spell the name of that plant? Can't remember or even come close enough for my spellchecker to come up with the right one). Colors are very nice in all of them. What do you think so far?

Great shots Paul! Amazing camera, and it looks like you know just how to use it. Think I will end up getting that 18-135 for my trip to Italy. Good luck with it. Just curious what the first 3 numbers of your serial number are? My starts with 403xxxx, so far no problems.

I would think that the 18-135 would be fantastic for traveling, especially with the WR feature. (I intentionally used this lens for this series because I knew you were looking at it.) I have a Tamron 28-75 f/2.8 I really like for this kind of shooting as well as the Pentax 100mm WR macro.

My camera's serial number is 413xxxx.

Wonderful photos Paul. You have the exact camera and lens combination I want. So many people on this forum have gotten the K5 and are delighted with it (once they get a properly working copy), I fear I won't be able to resist much longer. My property taxes are due in a few weeks, and I'm pretty sure most of the money in my bank account will not be going toward a K5 any time soon. But some day, I'll get one!

Great colors and textures on all of these - very nice work!

#2 looks like a Coleus to me - is that correct?

Thanks, mole, for spelling it - I tried about 4 different ways and didn't come anywhere close. I was thinking it was some type of coleus also.
