I shoot with a 1980's Pentax MX film camera and a Pentax K5-II DLSR.  I use a Takumar 28-80, a Takumar 70-210 and a Tamron 18-200 macro XR DiII. All tack sharp. I use a similar lens group for the film camera. Have several different CU systems for the K5 and Also use light scanning with it.

Wow, K-5. Hope you will really enjoy it. Read a review of "an other" camera, compared to 3 other cameras, which included the K-5. K-5 came out on top!!! Well enjoy the K-5 and hope to hear more later.

No discontinuation, pentax is bringing out a new line of lenses, and I assume bodies to follow..they are moving up in the digital world.

Traded my canon 40d for a pentax K5..:) anxiously awaiting delivery!

I have not heard this rumour... Wow, I hope not. But what would be the profit of Ricoh if they have discontinued most of their line of cameras... and then to do the same with Pentax... ?

Does anyone know what RICOH has planned for Pentax? They discontinued most of the line of cameras. The K5 is their only DSLR and there's a rumor that is to be discontinued.
