Hello from Atlanta, GA, USA

Hi, my name is Steve and I just bought a K-50 to replace my lost Nikon 5700.

I really liked the Nikon but it was due for a replacement anyway.

Ages ago I had a Minolta XG-1 that I fumbled around with. The only think automatic on it was the light meter but all the settings were manual. I enjoyed learning about photography with that camera and I had a few good shots here and there but mostly I have always been a noob. Hopefully that will change now. I've enjoyed the K-50 so far and just ordered the DA 50mm f1.8 lens to augment my two kit zooms. I have a Nikon SB-800 that works, at least in manual mode, with the K-50 so I have a decent amount of equipment. The rest is up to me I guess.

I look forward to lurking and learning here on the

Welcome to the forum Steve and you picked up a great camera to become more than a "noob".
Hope to see a picture or two soon

Welcome to the forum, like many here (myself included) you've done your "apprenticeship" on Nikon, now can really enjoy your Pentax.
