hello Pentax Forums.

I am new to the groups. I just got a new K-50. So I have lots to learn. I still have a old K-1000 that has been my best friend for a lot of yrs. I am hoping the new man on the block K-50, will treat me half as good.

Hello, and Welcome to Pentax Forums. The K1000 is fondly remembered and actively used by quite a few members, here, although there are probably more using the K-50! The K-50 is a very well-regarded DSLR, and I'm sure it won't disappoint you, especially as you have long experience with a film SLR. Enjoy your time here; there's a lot of help available if you ask.

Welcome to the forum, hope you kept your old lenses as well as the K1000, as they are still good to go on the K50.

Welcome from Chicago!

I like TAv mode, I find it most convenient to control the most important parameters on the fly.
