Kr or bust

Ordered A Kr. Have and love my Kx. Want to see first hand what is or isn't wrong with this camera. There is nothing else that can compete with this unit as fas I can tell.

Anyway I am well aware of the the issues discussed, so I am keeping my fingers crossed.

Most of my shooting will be outdoors. (kids sports)

To get a idea of what the K-r can do, I've been following birds lately and I've had some great shots.

The k-r is fantastic, as long as you dont need to use AF in Tungsten a lot its amazing. I just MF or use LV when in Tungsten. Really its so minor but such a big deal gets made over it. Otherwise the camera is stellar

Thanks. It arrives tomorrow. There doesn't seem to be a whole lot of positive posts on the Kr, but I already have a Kx and just love it. Gave that to my daughter and now looking forward to the Kr. Most all my shooting will be outside or with a flash added on inside. I will post my thoughts and first pics when it comes in this weekend.
