Happy New Gear!

My Amazin' Warehouse "Used" red K50 arrived to start the year off right (since nobody delivers on 1/1 the 2nd will have to do).
Nice box, shiny red camera - and yes, the shutter count says TWO.



May we all be stricken with such bargains in 2016!

Love my K-50! It was my first DSLR and my first Pentax and got me hooked on the brand.

You've got a 55-300 HDWR coming too? You're going to have a really nice setup there.

Dude, I been using the k-50 with the 55-300wr and it's a pretty nice setup. I wish it was 18-300 but for the price, can't complain. Congrats!

Thanks all. It definitely pays to check the Warehouse after Christmas The cam plus two lenses was a pinch over $500; I was seeking white but the HD ring will go better with the red body anyway

I have a nice bargain ($22) copy of Sigma's 100-300 DL to keep me company. But it's snowing now, that's WR weather for sure

Wow. VERY nice score. (Being a Aussie originally I thought WA might be Western Australia, in which case $500 Australian for that would be nothing short of amazing. But this is still pretty damn good.)

At that price, I'd risk it in a few light snowflakes. A heavy drift, not so much. Damn good find.

Congratulations!


My white K-50/18-135 arrived today. YEE HAW!!! My first dslr. Impressed with the build quality. Was never able to handle one before I ordered it. No stores in the area carry Pentax. Looked at Canikons in the same price range. SO happy I went with Pentax. It's like Christmas all over again.

Congrats! I received mine on Jan. 6
Only used a Kodak compact in the past, and iPhone, of course. Began 30 years ago with my old Pentax K-1000. Just transferred that old strap to my newbie I've named Ginger Looking forward to learning all her tricks. Have fun!
