Hi, from Portugal

Hi to You ALL!

My first SLR (more than 20 years ago) was a Pentax ME with a the 50mm 1.7, 35-70mm Vivitar zoom and a 50mm macro. I bought this like 4th or 7th hand because it was very well used. But it served/teached me very well for a long time. Then I miss the control to speed... I looked for a ME Super with no success.
My pocket didn't understood my need to the "LX" so over the years I got other brands... Shame on me!!!

Then came the digital... I got a Pentax Optio 33L, lovely "great machine". And the film... got dusty.
Later I moved on to Olympus... I was looking to get some old OM-D lenses... and I was a bit blinded because the 4/3 system.
Again Shame on me!

After some time I sell or gave away everything. And left with the all-around/all family Fuji S9600.

I miss the days when I took ONLY the ME and the 50mm, all day long. and did everything I wanted!
So I started to look and here I am.
Catching up, and looking for some information about what should I buy these days.

Bom Dia y Bem Vindos.

Consider the K-50 or the K-3 with the WR 18-135 lens to start with or the 50mm 1.8 prime lens.

Welcome here, the answer is the LX and a nifty fifty, as you missed out the joys of LX ownership the first time round.
