Hello

Just trying to get back into some Photography for a Hobby, I took classes in College and spent years a videographer, now that I have a kid I want to get into a little photography again. Mostly joined to gain some knowledge from the forums and look for a camera for sale.

I have some classics. a K1000, A3000, ZX-10, just figure its time to move into a DSLR, and I have always enjoyed my Pentax products. Working to get a K-7 or K-5 Body now so that I can use my AF Tamron 28-200mm 571d, not a great lens but has served me well for general purpose stuff.

I have recently acquired a SF1n to go with my K-50. I need to get a battery
and some film yet so I can take it for a spin.

Well after days of looking and a little luck I just scored a K-5 body with a shutter count of 65 for $240. A little more than I was hoping to spend right now on a camera but the deal was too good to pass up. Next I need to save up for a decent lens, Ill run my Tamron for awhile. Hopefully will receive the K-5 this week and I can start taking some photos for Easter.

Congrats, You might also think about looking in the forum marketplace when you get your lens.
I have bought a couple there and saved some money. Also the DA35 f2.4 and the DA50 f1.8
are a good value and great performance. Have Fun!.

I just joined today as well. I mainly jumped into photography for the same reason as you...a child. I wanted to learn to take quality photos and once he started walking I knew I'd never be able to keep up with the action with a sluggish point and shoot.

Welcome to the clubhouse!
That's a great deal on a K5 body. You'll really like it, I'm sure.
