Hello all,

After many years of using a bridge camera I decided I would like to take the next step and enter the world of the DSLR. After much deliberation and research I have decided to shun Canon and Nikon and buy Pentax. I am just waiting for my retailer of choice to get some new stock and then I will hopefully be able to collect a nice shiny new K-S2. I am looking forward to many years of happy photography.

The K-S2 is a great starter camera, and it also has lots of advanced features for when you get the hand of things. Congrats on the upcoming purchase!

Hi all, thanks for the welcome messages. My camera is now back in stock and on it's way. Looking forward to the weekend when it should be here and I will be able to take it out for a play.

Welcome to DSLR-land. You'll have fun learning the new system.

What kind of photography would you like to pursue with your new gear? The bridge may well still be useful as a complimentary tool.

My bridge camera is a Panasonic FZ-28, which is still okay for some scenarios but at 10 megapixel lacks detail, but it will still have a home in my camera bag.

I am lucky enough to live on the coast and have some exceptional nature reserves close by, add to that a plethora of castles and the odd cathedral and abbey, I am spoilt for subject matter.
