Hi there folks,
New to the forum and hope to learn a bit from perusing some of the threads here. I presently have the Olympus Evolt E-500 that I have never gotten overly proficient with it relying mainly on the programmed stuff. It took a fall not too long ago and now it can't be counted on from one shot to the next to focus, proper contrast, or color rendition, even just seconds apart in the same environment and settings.

Hence I am considering the purchase of the Pentax K-50, but am also researching some other Pentax, Canon, Nikon, and Sony models too. I'm also checking into some short courses from the university here in town so that I might advance beyond the bare essentials of DSLR photography.. I'm sure I'll do a lot of reading and research in he threads here over the next few weeks.

LOL, money is my biggest hangup. I'm still doing a lot of reading and research from various sources about all the available stuff. I am strongly leaning toward the Pentax line though.
