Thanks for all the help, I ended up buying (w/ 18-55 + 55-300) at Amazon because of the price+shipping time. Got it yesterday but was able to get a refund of the difference of the new 749 price. That's just a steal. Now I just need to learn how to use it!
Glad you got a great deal. I spent $628 on the K-x with the same lenses in September and that was a great price. The K-r is brand new and $749 shipped with the 2 lens kit is just a terrific price.

I've found a LOT of help here in the past couple of months. I'm also reading Peterson's Field Guide and it has a lot to offer IMHO as a novice at dSLRs.
