I did. Working well so far. If you think you'll stay with the brand, you could get a used K50 body, have your fun, and then upgrade to something like that KS2 or K3 later. All the lenses would still work.

The K-50 is a great camera to start with, to continue with, and to finish with.

K-50 is the only dslr I've ever owned or used. It was down to that or a nikon body, and I can't stand nikon ergonomics. After a year and 2 months of shooting, I can say that I'm quite satisfied with it. I frequently take it out on the kayak with me, shoot in sub-zero temperatures in winter, and drag it around all over the place with me. I bought mine when it was still over $499 for the basic body+18/55 kit, at the current pricing I'd say there's probably no better bargain on the market.

a good starter for a dslr system. . I would recommend a bridge camera for a beginner.

when you want to go from a bridge camera, then it is a good option especially with the wr and bright primes you can shoot with.
under 500 with a few lenses is a good deal too.
