Sony guy, but interested in Pentax.

I'm a sony guy, but I really like Pentax offerings. Thinking about shooting long telephoto with Pentax and reserve the portrait work still for sony. The lens selection seems really good with Pentax. Had an old pentax back in the 80's. it was an awesome camera.

Welcome to the forums! The lens selection for Pentax isn't too shabby, but we're not spoilt for choice when it comes to really long tele lenses. There are some, though, so happy hunting!

Yeah, I'm diggin the k-50. Actually, the q10 looks interesting as well. Pentax seems to be doing a few things other manufacturers aren't and I like that. Plenty of options that really interest me.
