Hi All,

I'm a newby to the forum. Glad to be aboard. I've only dabbled in photography. It's one of too many hobbies. I've owned mostly Canon's in the past. I had a Canon SD800 point and shoot most recently that I really liked but it died. So I decided to go with a full-size DSLR this time around. And I got out of the Canon rut and bought me a Pentax K50 kit. I liked the idea of it being weather resistant and being able to use older less expensive lenses, as well as newer lenses. I've only had it a couple of weeks. So I'm still getting used to all of the capabilities. I have the 18-55 SMC DAL and the 50-200 SMC DA lens that came with the kit. It's olive drab with black rubber. I've attached some photos I've taken recently with it.

This is a great site. And the quality of the site was one of the reason's I ended up buying a Pentax camera.
