We are here to help you with all your lens decisions and any issues you may have. One word of warning. If you ask for lens recommendations, make sure you specify your budget. I have always recieved good advice and the suggestions are right on the money, its just that sometimes they are right on rather a lot of money

So, tell us more about yourself. Are you new to Pentax or photography as a whole? And what do you fancy shooting? Landscapes? Wildlife? Street? Whatever you want to know, someone here will have the answers. Welcome to Pentax forums

Hi from Canada, i got a K-50 as a back-up body, it has the same excellent 16 Mp sensor as my K-5iis, when not needed, i let friends experiment and learn with it. Treat yourself and buy the 4 AA battery holder, so practical.
