New to Pentax

Hello everyone,

Just got my first Pentax last week. I had a Rebel XTi that I was shooting with for a long time. Just used the Sigma 28-300mm lens, which I loved. Took great shots. I decided to upgrade and did a TON of research and decided on the Pentax K-50 with 18-55 and 50-200 kit lenses. I do a lot of motorcycle racing photography, portaits and wildlife. Looking to get into macro more too. I have a couple older Pentax-M lenses on the way, so I'm looking forward to trying those out. So far I am loving this camera.. Still trying to figure everything out, but its like a whole new world from the XTi. Here are just a couple shots I took of my dog the other day with the 50-200mm lens. Have a motorcycle race this weekend, so can't wait to see how it handles with fast action.

Let me know what you think. Still trying to figure the camera out and trying to get the sharpest shots possible.

Welcome aboard!
I suggest investigating a User mode for fast shooting where most in-camera processing is turned off, and so is the shake reduction since your shutter speed will be high. It's a very convenient feature.
