These are some inspiring pictures!

I've been missing an SLR (went to an early mirrorless a few years ago) Had a few 35 SLR's but always felt like my K10D was my first real camera. Pretty set on a K50 with the 18-135 kit and the Pentax SMCP-DA 50mm f/1.8. Unfortunately I sold my Pentax compatible glass.

I was planning to ask if I should look at other Pentax models but I think These pics have me reassured I'm making the right choice. So Thank you!
The K-50 is a dandy; I really like mine, however, the new KS2 is looking really good with a boat load of new features and improved performance to boot.

My son playing a local music festival in April of this year.

Really liking my K50 for taking pictures of his band, Way better than my K100D.

K-50 with DA 50mm f1.8

I get caught up in using a Sigma superzoom, I forget the pure simple beauty of a good 50mm prime:

I've been trying for a while to get a "good" shot of the hummingbirds that come to my feeder. While I'm not overly happy with the background on this, (it was the best angle I could get at the time) its the best shot I've gotten of the little buggers so far.

I have almost exclusively done car shows with the 18-55 DA L kit lens on my K-50.

I'm going to have to move on from sunsets at some point, but enjoying them immensely here on the prairie. My first attempt at bracketing and merging.

This was right around the corner from me. Went around town with my K-50 and my 30mm.

Yes, you are correct.
I am new to photography and I see 2 types of files got different look. I could not upload original raw file because it is too big.
lilcarp87, which software did you use to display the files? Assuming you used the RAW+JPEG camera capture, the RAW image you uploaded is a JPEG which was processed from the RAW by that software on your computer. The JPEG you uploaded is conceptually the same thing but instead of software on your computer doing that processing, the camera itself did it. Hope that helps.
