Hello from Kentucky

Doing some Xmas shopping for a new Pentax (will be my 4th) and found some fantastic info in this forum. Upgrading from my 1st DS to possibly a K-50 or a K-5 II and this site has been very helpful.

Welcome from Iowa! Did you check out the BF sales posted here? They're fantastic!! I hope you don't ditch the DS, They still produce really good photos. Be good for a backup!

Yeah, I was pretty well set on the K-50 until I saw the K-5 II BF sale. Now I need to choose between the two. Unfortunately my DS has a flaky shutter release button which makes it unreliable, hence the upgrade.
