New K-50 owner here

Just dropping in to extend greetings to members of this forum... I'm an owner of a Pentax K-50, and am looking forward to getting to know this superb camera.
The K-50 is not my frst Pentax -- that distinction belongs to the K-30 which I had traded in for another brand's digital mirrorless system -- but after about a year of trying to get used to it, I was feeling a bit let down by the cost sinkhole of accessories, and that it could never outright better the out-of-camera images produced by my old Pentax in spite of its higher Mpixel count. So I jumped back to Pentax where I know the quality is good, the jpegs are to taste (I don't like spending time on post-processing, BTW), and solid, inexpensive lenses abound; in fact, I picked up a K1000 film camera with two vintage lenses: an SMC Pentax-M 50mm f2, and an SMC Pentax-F 35-80mm f4-5.6. that both work flawlessly on my K-50. (I held off on the DA-L kit zoom to maybe pick up a DA 18-135mm in the future).
Anyhoo, a hello to all and looking forward to seeing you around he forums.

Welcome back, as a K-30 and K-50 owner, I know you'll hit the ground running, nearly identical cameras performance wise.

A hearty welcome back from a fellow K-50 owner. I too always thought getting more serious into photography was a money game that I couldn't afford to play. And when I explored other systems, I was right. But after getting referred to Pentax, now an owner of some halfway decent lenses and getting photos I am very happy with, I haven't at all felt like anything I wanted was out of my reach. And I think I have a pretty small budget. Extremely satisfied with the accessibility.
