Hi all. Greetings from Cape Town South Africa I am excited to take up photography again and although I got weird looks when I decided to go the Pentax way am confident I am on the right track Pentax hardly gets a mention here but there is a good support system in place with a dedicated few keeping the flag flying

I am using a K50 and smiling " Viva la difference"

Welcome to the forum, you will find lots of info and many like minded people keen to help with whatever your questions are. I have just come back from a holiday and the looks I was getting from Canikon buffs just made me smile knowing they were jealous .

Greeting from a fellow Capetonian, and welcome to a great reference site for all things Pentax and photography in general. There is something really special about Pentax, and although not the most popular brand in RSA, there is a lot of good older stuff floating around that works rather well with the modern DSLRs from Pentax. I also think the K-5 to K-3 range is up there with the best of the best ito image quality and rugged beyond anything in the Canikon similar price range. Only gripe is AF tracking system perhaps not up to the best for BIF etc.

Looking forward to some posts and pics. And why not join the RSA users group or take a look there.
