Hello from Barcelona.

Hello from Barcelona.

In the film era I had a PENTAX ME super for 15 years. When digital times arrived, I bought a HP camera (?!?¿), then a SONY bridge one and later I was using my father's former camera, a PANASONIC FZ50.

At the present I'm looking for a new camera, an APS-C format one in order to increase the IQ of my pictures. As I still keep some PENTAX prime lenses (F-50 mm 1.7, A-35 mm 2.8 and M-135 mm 2.8), I think that this is a good reason to go back to PENTAX.

I found this forum and I'm reading as much as I can to take a good buying decision.

Welcome to the Forums. I think you could find something in the current (or recent) range of Pentax cameras that meets your needs. Being able to use those older Pentax lenses on them is a big advantage. And you will be able to share some great images of Barcelona. It is one of my wife's favourite cities.

Welcome to Pentax Forums. Barcelona is a terrific city for images.

There are many things to think about, when you buy into a camera system, and lenses are important. You also need to think about what you want to photograph and in what conditions. The weather-resistant Pentax bodies are good for keeping dust and moisture out of the equipment, provided you pair one with a WR lens, of course. The Pentax range is good for the APS-C sensor format, with highly capable bodies like the K-S2 and advanced ones such as the K-3 and K-3ii.

If you want more or more specific advice, can I suggest you start a thread on that topic, because you'll find people here to be very knowledgable and helpful. Good luck with your search.
