I too just purchased a K50 after having recently sold my Kx.
It is supposed to arrive today!
Sold my Kx as I wanted WR and the 100% viewfinder. My older K10 will still be around for shooting astro-type images and as a back-up for my new k50.

Just bought one also...haven't taken it out of the box yet! Working too darn much! I got the package with the 18-55 and the 50-200, and for a hundred bucks more I got the 50mm 1.8! It came out to about a hundred bucks per lens! How could I pass that up?! Now I'm trying to figure out what filters I need, if any...I want to protect my lenses, but don't know what to do? I do remember from years ago when I knew what I was doing that a polarizer was a must-have, but I can't afford the top-of-the-line ones after shelling out for the camera? Confused? Oh, and I also want a case or bag for that stuff...any suggestions??? Thanks, KennyD
Going to Marbella (Spain) friday with my brand new K50 + 18-135mm. Will take the first pictures there. Sold my Lumix G5,... never again a M4/3!
@nawlinz, I bought the B+W UV-Haze filter to protect the lens...

I agree as I Do NOT want my flash popping up when the camera thinks it needs it. That is a point and shoot function that was carried over to DSLR for "lazy" people IMHO. If I wanted a smart camera that did everything for me, I'd buy one.
It doesn't do everything for you, though... it does what it thinks it needs to do - which inevitably in some conditions is absolutely NOT what you want!

I just got my K-50, and leave the flash "on"... pop it up when I need it, push it back down when I don't - ideal!
