Hello everyone!

I bought a Nikon D3200 from a local camera shop. After spending some time with the camera, I went into the store just to hang out. They showed me a K-50 while I was there. I fell in love, and they let me trade the D3200 for the K-50, paying only the difference. I got it with the 18-55 and the 50mm f1.8. I must say I like the prime more than I like the zoom :-P.

I've browsed here for a few days and figured it was time to join! Looking forward to being a part of the community!

Welcome to the site. Huge amount of information here if you ever need help and no question is too stupid to ask when you are new......... I've learned so much here in the past year. Don't be too shy.

Welcome aboard, that's a good enough bit of figuring for me.
