    Hi folks! I presently use an aging EOS M kit. It's served me well over the last five years, but I am starting to feel the need to invest in a better system, preferably full frame. I primarily shoot architecture, landscapes and travel, with the odd street thrown in. Resolution isn't super...

    Pentax K-X too outdated?

    I'm wanting to get a dslr but have a very small budget 250 or less. So I was thinking of getting an older one and have heard good things about the Pentax K-X. But 2009 seems pretty old. I just don't know enough about cameras to figure it out on my own. Thanks for the help.

    The Pentax K-1 is an awesome camera

    I thought I might just drop a thread about how awesome this new camera is. It's been enduring the weather and nailing the shot. I've had it for a few months now and I have gotten over the 'buyers remorse' for not going with a more streamlined camera like the D810 (or what not). Pentax K-1 with...
