I just bought my first Pentax cam

I have been ready to pull the trigger on either a Pentax K-x or Pentax K-r for the past few months, and tonight I saw the K-r with the 18-55 and 55-300 for $740 on Amazon and finally went for it.

I used to shoot with a Sony A700 before having to sell it, and the lenses, to help pay for school, and now that I'm ready to jump back into photography I decided to go with Pentax due to liking their line-up direction better than everybody else at the moment. Not to mention the Pentax limited series lenses that I can dream about one day owning once I'm out of school

I'm excited to get my first Pentax DSLR and I'm excited to be a part of this community. I can't wait to get out and start shooting again; being without a DSLR is like being trapped!
