Hi All

I'm new to the forum, and just wanted to say hi to everyone...
I have always enjoyed photography, just as I have followed this forum for a bit now...

Currently, I'm looking to buy either the k-30 or k-50, and thinking "upgrade" to K-5iis/K-3 in the future (keeping the k-30/k-50 as a backup ofcourse) ...
I wish I had the budget to go for the K-3 now, but I think with the prices dropping on the lower end Pentax dslrs, such as the K-30/K-50 I can't go wrong for a starter dslr.
I have had slr's in the "analog days" (Canon/Minolta)... yet only own a small Pentax point-and-shoot Optio WP (5MP) today - and it takes quite nice pictures...

Anyway, I'm glad to have joined the community here,
and I hope to write more in the future and get involved.

Best Regards,
Hans Lendorf

Welcome aboard!

Try the old method of sticking $10 a week in an envelope and you'll have a new DSLR in a year or so with little pain. Oh, do look in the Marketplace for used cameras. It's the best way to stretch your budget, and you know you're buying it from someone who probably cared for their equipment.

Hi Jean and Ter-Or.

Yes, I will try to post some pictures when I get a chance...

:-) I saved up a bit, so I'm probably due for a purchase... many thanks, I'll have a look in the Marketplace. Great idea...
