No Longer Reconsidering!

So I stuck to my guns and ordered the K-r with the DA L 55-300. It should be here tomorrow! I also ordered a lens hood (went with the cheapo rubber collapsible one for now), a IR remote control, and now am looking at different filters. Until I get a little more familiar with the hobby, I think I will stick with a UV filter and a circular polarizer....maybe a ND filter.
C'mon UPS man!!!

Congrats and welcome to the club! You're going to love the k-r. Tread carefully, though. LBA is a sinister disease that strikes without warning! I didn't have it while I had my k-x. But once I got the k-r shortly after it was released, BAM! It hit me.

Here's to hoping you get the camera and not the dreaded delivery ticket. Cheers!

I ordered a kx in white today - I did not get the second lens - I have a pentax 55-300 manual lense that I can use while I save up for the DAL

I am also waiting for mine to be delivered!!
