Nuevo Desde españa.- ( New From Spain. )

Hello, I am new and I live in Spain. I like photography a lot and I am interested in buying a pentax K-70 or maybe a ks2 would be to start but I already have some basic knowledge.
Years ago I had as an amateur photography with analog cameras.

My name is Diego and if someone could advise me on these two camera pictures I would be very grateful.

Greetings to all.

PD:forgive my english but I use google translator.

They are very similar, but the K-70 has much better image quality and better ergonomics, so if you can afford the K-70 it would recommend it over the K-S2.

Hola Diego, bienvenido al foro. No somos muchos Pentaxeros en España.

Las K-70 y K-S2 son buenas camaras, creo que no hay mucha diferencia entre las dos pero la K70 es un poco más nueva. Veo algunas ofertas de la K-S2.

Hi Diego. The k-70 body it's very cheap right now in Amazon.co.uk £499.00 (probably 590€ with shipping). I would also buy a 35mm f2.4.
I prefer this one over the 50mm and I think it's the best option. If it seems expensive to you in Amazon.fr you have a KS2 kit at 530€.

Welcome to the forum, lots of good advice already given, so can I just ask?

Could you please send some of your warm Spanish sunshine our way.

I would also do that if I could, in exchange for some refreshing Scottish rain. Here in Madrid it hasn't rained since early July, and much of the rest of the country is in a similar situation.

Thank you very much for the warm welcome and the great advice.
Unfortunately I was traveling and I could not see the offers on time but I have more clear my purchase, it will be a k70 with the objective 18-135 which I think meets most situations for me ,later I'll buy another fixed as a 35mm and also I want a fish eye.

Thank you for your advices.
