Greetings from France

Hi everyone!

I've doing photography since 2003 when the first digital cameras were becoming interesting (on and off, as amateur only). Then switched to smartphones, until someone offered me a Pentax K100D Super, which brought me into the DSLR and Pentax world.

I bought a Pentax K-S2 one year ago, and some lenses all over the time :

Pentax DA-L 18-50 f/4-5.6
Pentax DA 35 f/2.4
Pentax DA 50 f/1.8
Tamron 18-250 f/3.5-5.6

Sigma 10-20 f/3.5

The Pentax DA 35 f/2.4 is my favorite thanks to its great image quality and is mounted on the camera most of the time!
Even if I -am- quite fustrated to see that a smartphone like Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 can do excellent pictures (often better than what I can do with my Pentax)

Thanks for accepting me.

Welcome to the forums Bertrand.
Smart-phones can produce some impressive results but they do not offer the same level of control as a DSLR does.
