hello from Ontario Canada

I'm going to purchase a pentax K50 in 2 weeks. I'm on a pension so by then I'll have enough saved. I was out of photography for about 30 years the last camera I had was a canon A1. I've been researching cameras and feel the pentax is the best bang for my buck. This is the first time I've posted to any forum so forgive any errors I might have made and I would appreciate advise on buying the body only or with the kit lens.

Welcome. Yes, Pentax is the best bang for the buck and for other reasons too.
