Hi Folks

For several years I am using Pentax camera's (ME-Super, SF7, ISTDS, K7) Besides the standard lenses I owned also a Pentax 75-300mm (which last year did get stuck) and a SIGMA 150-500 mm . Inside I am using a Metz MZ 58 flash.
With the K7 I can make pretty good pictures without flash, but sometimes the colour in the picture is different
The subjects I do photograph are architectonical /old buildings, panorama's 's, birds, family pictures and sports.
Because I am looking for a new 75-300mm zoom I am triggered by the new Pentax 55-300mm PLM lens. It should be a much faster lens I used to have. I am expecting also less hunting,
The second point is that the K7 camera is not compatible with this lens. Therefore I am searching for a new camera, like the Pentax K3-II or KP.
That' s why I am reading a lot of stuff on this forum. I especially like the reviews, tips and I am curious about the pictures on this site.

Welcome. K3-ii and KP should be a big jump up from the K7 in image quality, ISO performance and auto-focus. K-70 is also an option but uses an older focusing system.
