Hola from Florida

Hi there,

Another new guy, just hit the buy button on Amazon for a K-50 with both the 18-55 and 50 - 200 mm WR lenses. Seems like a got a great deal, maybe someone can take a look and confirm please?

Amazon.com: Pentax K-50 16MP Digital SLR Camera Kit with DA L 18-55mm WR f3.5-5.6 and 50-200mm WR Lenses (Black): PENTAX: Camera & Photo

I was a Nikon guy in the past, going back to 35mm days back in the 80's. Lost all my stuff in a divorce a few years ago so I was looking to start over and came across the Pentax K -50. I'm very interested in the weatherproof qualities of it, I backpack, kayak, and spend a lot of time outdoors, so had to have it for an upcoming trip to Hawaii.

Anyways, just wanted to say hi, and hope to learn a lot and maybe contribute in the near future!

Jeff

The cameras and lenses are not waterproof, just weather resistant, but check out this post by forum member Heie on dpreview. He has tested to destruction and failed to break his equipment.

Well so much for "EXPEDITED" shipping with Amazon.... Ordered it last Tuesday and I'm still waiting. UPS says it won't be here until tomorrow.

I guess I'm just impatient. Really wanna play with it now

No, it's just that UPS doesn't charge for shipping. They charge for storage (and for Canadians, brokerage).
