Hello From DE

Hello Pentax Forum.

I recently purchased my first Pentax camera and am very happy with it. I am coming from a Samsung Mirror-less NX series camera which was very nice but I wanted a viewfinder and I am not sure how long Samsung will be in the camera business. After doing lots of research I came to the conclusion that a Pentax would be best for me. The value that Pentax has is great and I wanted something that was "different" (not Nikon/Canon).

I ended up purchasing a K-50 body, Pentax DA 50mm 1.8, and Sigma DG 70-300 and have really enjoyed it so far. I am waiting for the arrival of my Tamron 17-50 2.8. While looking for lenses online my search always led me to this forum so I figured I would join, lots of great information!!

My other hobby and true passion is cars so I find myself taking a lot of pictures of them. I don't have any fancy cars just a Honda Fit, but I enjoy tinkering with it and taking pictures of it. I am an active member on a few car forums and really appreciate what forums have to offer.

I am new to the DSLR world and still learning all the in and outs of photography. I have also been playing with photo editing (Affinity Photo) which has been a challenge but lots of fun. Anyway thanks for having me, I am sure I will have some questions soon.

G'day and welcome to the forums.

There's plenty of info about DSLR's and Pentax equipment here and we hope you enjoy your time discovering the many threads that interest you.

One that might be of interest and help with learning about photo editing is the Post Processing Challenge series found here: Mini-Challenges, Games, and Photo Stories - PentaxForums.com

See you around the traps.

Tas
