Congrats, it's a great camera. When I had my K100D, years ago, I could only dream of getting a K20D. Now they are such a bargain, and they still hold up.

Well I did post 3 photos on the first page please be kind as I have only had a DSLR now for a bit over a week... I have better shots now but don't want to bore everyone with every new thing I learn.

Yesterday I got my Auto Sears 50mm 1.7 in the mail... it's beautiful, but I still want a real Pentax 50mm 1.7 for comparison. And so begins the hunt for manual lenses... now will be looking for a good deal on manuals - 50mm 1.4 and 28mm 3.5... and I want the Plastic Fantastic DA 35mm 2.4 so my wife can take beautiful pictures on the green mode...

It's a great lens for the dollar ... a super bang for the buck ... good luck in your lens hunt, J

I just got the 50mm F2 A lens and there really great, even with Manual focus it works nice with the K20D.

The Nikon D600 is not a medium format camera.

What happened?

As an update... I think I might become a better photographer if I stick with it for now and learn to use a proper flash with it.
My main issue has been low light pictures, and if I can get good shots with lower ISOs and a flash, like photographers have done for decades, then I think that will be a great learning experience for me. In the meantime I'll see what Pentax comes up with next, and do a proper upgrade to a K-5 II or its successor when I have the means to do so.
