Howdy, I'm new to Pentax, new to DSLRs, new to the forum. I moved up from a Canon SuperZoom. I read a lot of reviews and shopped a lot online. I decided on a K-50, but then BH had a deal on the K-5IIs for only $100 more (apparently it is being discontinued). There was no way to turn that down. Now I have the K-5IIs with the 18-135mm & the 55-300mm lenses. Everything is sealed and everything works great - except the photographer who is definitely a work in early progress.
