Welcome to the Forums. You will find that Pentax make great cameras. There is a new APS-C model supposedly being released in February 2021 that is expected to make waves. It will with Pentax users anyway.

That's great! When you do your research I think that you will find Pentax has a larger value component for the money than others. The only drawback I have ever seen with going Pentax is that there are not as many third-party accessories made for it. If you do go for 3rd party gear stick to major names and you will do well.

Welcome from Tennessee. You’ve come to the right place to ask questions and do your research on your next purchase.
