Hi guys, just new here. I live in Italy and likely in a couple of days I will own my first Pentax, a K50 (second hand). I am already a bit into photography, I am a M43 user too. Unfortunately my gear is not WR and I want a good and sort of rugged camera to take stills of the children on the beach, hiking, etc. A used (and inexpensive) K50 seems a good deal.
