Welcome Speech

Hi everyone
I am Ujwal Adhikary from West Bengal, India.I am in banking sector and love travel and photography.I am planning to buy Pentax k 50 with 18-135mm lens instead of double zoom kit.Every one around me suggest to buy Nikon 5200D.But I stick to Pentax.I think I am not wrong in terms of photo quality.Actually I beleive it is not just camera but man behind it is important.How do you people think it?
Regards

Ujwal

That's absolutely correct. The gear just facilitates getting the job done, but good gear doesn't automatically make you a good photographer

Welcome to the Forums. There are lots of good cameras out there and they all have their strengths and weaknesses. The thing that really distinguishes the Pentax for me, though, is its in-body shake reduction. Most other manufacturers have the shake reduction in the lens. The advantage of in-body shake reduction is that you can use old manual lenses on your Pentax and still have the benefit of shake reduction. There are a lot of us here who even use the old screw mount lenses with a K-mount adapter and have access to fantastic old lenses on our modern cameras. Those great older lenses do not cost much to buy either - that should appeal to a banker! Post some pics soon.

Welcome to the forum, your spot on, it's what's behind the camera that counts.

Welcome mate. That's a great introduction, with about three good rambling threads worth of topics covered already.
Probably one of the big advantages of buying Pentax is having access to the relevant information on this website. Enjoy.
