Hi everybody.
I switched from Olympus E-520 to K50. My olympus started to have some issues (after 7 years of use) and I wanted something new. I did not like EVF in new mirrorless cameras from OLY and also that I had to buy adapter for my old lenses, so I decided to leave Oly and find something else. I wanted in body image stabilization (like my oly) and WR and K50 has it all. So far I'm very happy. K50 works fine, has no issues in humid Florida weather. I bought it with 18-135mm lens and it's for me perfect combination for family photos.

Hello! Sorry to hear about your E-520. I have one of those and, have enjoyed using it. I am hoping to get an E-M1 in my arsenal so I can keep shooting Olympus as well. As for your K-50, it will be a noticeable improvement over your E-520 in most every way except for the IS function flexibility and maybe custom WB accuracy. You will find the Pentax user interface much, much easier to navigate and use than that of the E-520 and, the Green Button will quickly spoil you. Enjoy your K-50!
