Early Christmas, Kr came today

Unpacked my new Kr and started battery charging. Scanned the manual and found it is more difficult to follow than the Oly 620E I tried and returned but the Kr has more features and capabilities. My Pentax 1.7 M50 MM sure looks and feels nice on it. Dusted off all my manual glass and boy is it heavy compared to the kit lenses. Hopefully tomorrow between raking and burning leaves I will have time to take some shots of fall follage before all the oaks drop their leaves.

Thanks. I had my first opportunity to shoot this afternoon at my small towns Christmas parade. I grabbed the DAL 55-300 but other than some long range shots I really needed the 28-55mm as 55mm was just too close. Found out really quick that something in the 18-200mm range would be nice. I thought it would be difficult to learn the Kr but I was wrong. It not only felt right (my wife doesn't understand this at all) but I found the menu and surface controls to be very intuitive which is something I have read in this forum quite often. It reminded me of just how good my first 35mm slr felt, a pentax MX, which I still own. I am a happy camper with a wife who can't understand why.
