First time Pentax Owner

Hi there,

I'm a first time pentax owner. I recently bought a K3 and used it during my trip to Disneyland in California.
the camera delivered more than I expected. I am very impressed by ease of use.

I have been shooting w/ Nikon D50 and Panasonic LX5 for a long time. My goal is to capture memories so megapixels, etc. doesn't matter for me.
Recently I decided to upgrade my DSLR and went thru trying to decide between Canon 60D, Nikon D7000 and D7100. Then I found out about K3 and decided to give it a try. It looks like everything about K3 was designed by photographers, whereas Nikon and Canon machines were defined on paper by marketing departments I really enjoyed using K3 whereas I was trying to convince myself to use d7100. Good thing I returned that thing and bought K3.

WR came in handy during some wet rides.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everybody.
