Been here a while, just saying hello

Hi everyone. I have been a member here for a while having owned a Pentax X90 for many years. After many years of trouble free use, I decided to upgrade and so on the weekend took delivery of a new K-50 with the 18-55 and 55-200 lenses.
Haven't had much chance to get used to it yet but as a brand new DSLR user can't understand why I didn't upgrade years ago
Who knew....... I understand that both lenses are "kit" lenses but the increase in quality over the X90 is remarkable.

Welcome to the Forums. Quite a few here from southeast Queensland (not me - I'm much further west!)
