New to it All

Good Day Pentaxians,

I am new to the world of photography and decided to purchase an entry level DSLR that would allow me to go almost anywhere and take quality photos. After doing an extensive amount of research I ended up battling between the Nikon D3300 and the Pentax K-50. Of course the K-50 won and I am sure all of you experienced photographers know the many reasons why. I just received my K-50 today from Amazon (Used-Like new) $317.00 with 2 DAL kit lenses and I am extremely excited. I will be spending my night reading the manual and exploring this forum. I just wanted to introduce myself and I hope you all take it easy on me as I begin to ask many questions learning this awesome artform.
