Thank you very much all.
Your opinions are really helpful.

In regards to what I will be using it for, well, I am currently interested in landscapes, street, macro.
As much I get into this - portraits become more and more interesting for me.
Not interested in sports or wildlife at this point. :)

Again - thank you all for your advise!

It is nice to hear that these options are mainly in the right direction. So, right now - I consider starting with a body + kit lens (either 18-135 or 18-50) or something similar (as the Sigma 17-50).

I will look around some more, who knows - probably I can find an offer with a discount next month.

In the meantime - I will follow this thread for some other suggestions (if any).

Thanks again! :)

By more options in a long-run - I mean not only the body, but also the lens. From what I've read (and also from the comment in this thread) - perhaps a better option will be to go for better lens and K-70 instead of KP and not so better lens.

Thank you all for the comments and suggestions!

During the last couple of weeks - I have been reading a lot of reviews and comments about both cameras, but still - I cannot decide.

I've set up a budget for this, as I prefer to choose a solution which will provide me more quality and options in a long run. Saying that - perhaps the problem is that I am still not sure if I will take photography more and more serious in the future, or I just want a decent camera for taking photos during trips, events etc.

I've watched a review for KP, and one of the conclusions was that one of the reasons for Pentax to come up with it is as an answer to the competition for the mirrorless cameras. Basically - the review stated that KP is great if it will be used with small lens with fixed focal length. K-70 on the other hand (again according to the reviews) seems more suited for larger lens.

I am still learning about the different lens, pros and cons of the and vario and I also try to find the best combination of camera + lens for my budget. Perhaps I will try to write some of these combinations and will post them here for your opinions.

Hello guys,

I am still new in the world of photography and DSLRs, but hopefully - this will change soon.

At the moment I am exploring my options for buying my first DSLR and I am almost sure it will be a Pentax.

Till now - most of my photos were taken either with a phone or with a compact camera. I've taken some shots with K-50 and my general impressions are good. This and the comments which I have received from more experienced photographers convinced me to choose Pentax.

Now having to choose the exact model - I am choosing from two models - Pentax KP and Pentax K-70.
Reading through the reviews for both cameras - they seem very similar to me (in theory KP should be better, but based on the reviews - this is not always the case), so I hope that you can point me in the right direction.

So, long story short - could you suggest me which Pentax to choose and why - KP or K-70, for my first DSLR?

Thanks in advance!
