I Love my K-50

For six years I had a Fuji bridge camera. It was a step up from the Nikon pocket camera I had before it and I learned a lot from it. For three years I lusted for a K-30 and then transferred my affection to the K-50. Everything came together a few weeks ago and I bought a shiny red K-50 with the 18-55mm kit lens. I am absolutely blown away by it. What I struggled to do with the Fuji is easy now. I truly enjoy having manual focus. It makes all the difference to be able to take control of the image with it. The attached photo was made in bright sunshine, hand held with the lens set to 18mm and a Vivitar Series 1 CPL (polarizing) filter attached. The camera info says I shot it at 1/150 and f7.1. I really love this camera.

Welcome aboard!
That's pretty much the path we see - stepping up the ladder when you can't do what you want. Bridges are nice, they work well for a lot but at some point won't do enough. Still, it will likely remain useful as a second body, if you have a long lens on your K50 the bridge can provide short coverage etc.
