Finally bought my own Pentax!

Hi everyone! Just call me MV for short. I'm from the beautiful islands of the Philippines and I am very happy owner of a new K50.

I've been lurking this forum as guest, reading posts about Pentax DSLR. Yesterday, I finally bought my very own Pentax after testing different models on shops for the last few months.

I'm moving from a very old Nikon D40 which is several generation old already. Even though it is still working and I could just upgrade to a cheaper 5200 or D7200, I moved to Pentax because of the superior price-value ratio, 100% VF, compact design, weather sealing and color choice. Looking at my photo library, I'm primarily an event and landscape shooter so when it rains or when water splashes is involved I usually miss the opportunity to shoot.

Yes, I did mention color as one of the selling point. I know many people frown upon the psychedelic color options but when I bought a white matte-finish "Stormtrooper" K50 I am glad Pentax is offering this kind of customization.

Here's a sample shot I've taken from the retail store.

@tpphots - Thanks.

I was originally looking at the blue K-30 as well but I realized later that do not want a glossy finish as it is prone to finger prints so I am glad K-50 white is the 'classic' white which is matte.

Congratz on the K-50 And welcome to the forum.
It's a very nice camera and I guess it must be a whole new world coming from Nikon.
Seen post from other members from the Philippines and they say it's hard to come by Pentax there.
Good to see at least one store has them in stock
Happy shooting!
