Hello from NY!

Hi, I bought a Pentax K-50 months ago as my first foray into photography. It has served me well so far, and I have already taken it up two mountains, and shot a landscape in a complete downpour. I love the ruggedness of this brand. I am hoping to upgrade my kit with an 18-35mm Sigma (and a rain cover to protect it's sissy non-weather sealed body). When I'm rich and famous I would like to purchase a K-1 and an Irix 15mm for astrophotography.
