Hello to everyone!

Hi,

Okay, so introducing myself. Hmm, I am one of those system switchers and i'm kind of in the middle of moving from Nikon to Pentax. Got myself a Pentax k-50 a couple of weeks ago and my plan is that it in some time will replace my Nikon d5000. For now i just have the kit lens (18-55mm f3.5-5.6 DA-L WR) and the f1.8 nifty-fifty. This is the reason also why I won't give up the Nikon altogether yet, i first aim on building up my stash of pentax lenses a bit.

Anyhow, the real reason why i went for a system change and specifically pentax is the weather sealing. I do a great bit of sailing, and i am really sick of having to worry about the camera getting soaked once and a while

Me then? I am a 24 year old student from Finland. I'm not the type of photographer that wakes up at 4am in the morning to capture that awesome sunrise, but more of the photographer that aim to capture the scenes that i meet by living my life. Off course i have pictures of sunrises also, but i never i.e. plan a trip for a specific picture or something like that, if you understand what i mean

Welcome! I hope Pentax is the brand that offers most things you've been looking for and end your switchings!

Welcome to the forums. I hope you enjoy your K-50. I once had an 18-55, and I took some really nice pictures with it. I bought a 16-85 to have more range, but the 18-55 was capable of quite a lot.

Welcome aboard, I made the same switch many years ago when Nikons F3 was the camera to have.
