Hello from a Pentaxian

Hello,

I am a fellow pentaxian joining this forum. I have a Pentax K50 which had the solenoid failure, which I am looking to replace with a KP or K3 ii. The lens I have are 18-135mm, 50mm, 55-300mm PLM and 100mm macro. I looking to get more information on which camera to buy next. Another consideration is to whether to wait for the K3 ii successor. I enjoy taking macros, sports and wildlife.

Thank You

John

Welcome to Pentax Forums. I would recommend the K-3 II if you do not plan on waiting for the the K-3 II successor. I have one and it takes excellent images. Otherwise, if you wait, I am not sure how long the wait would be.

Welcome John.

Love how this sounds like someone in an addiction (LBA?) support group standing up and saying "my name is Jonathan and I'm a Pentaxian".
