Finally my First DSLR

Hello Pentaxians,

Glad to be a part of this community. After months of research I finally bought Pentax K-r with Kit lenses. So far so good. Took somewhere around 300 odd pictures with old firmware v1.00 and upgraded to v1.01 few moments before

Here is my stream on flickr

So far I am bugged with inconsistent battery meter, dont know upgrading to new firmware will fix that or not (as change log doesnt mention that)
There is one hot pixel on my LCD screen(its only on LCD, sensor is clean ), please let me know if that is something to worry and ask for warranty claims

Also, since i took most of the picture in a daylight, FF issue hasnt come into picture but I found picture to be slightly out of focus(soft) in low light out doors too.

Looking forward for your valuable Comments and Suggestions

Welcome to the forum, glad to have you join us. I think you'd get more replies to your questions if you post them in the Pentax K-5 forum.

Thanks eaglem!
Well truly saying, K-5 was a dream camera for me. I was tight on budget so had to settle with K-r. I hope I havent made a bad decision.(fingers crossed).

There are tiny things that worries me, apart from that I am proud to say I have Pentax K-r

I just bought the same setup, my first real DSLR after a 10 year hiatus since 35 film. Amazingly powerful camera! I'm looking forward to stepping up my photo as you clearly have. Beatuiful work!

*wave* Hello! I'm new too and just ordered a K-r as well; wow, I hope my first attempts are as beautiful as yours, the one of just the girl's back in front of the yellow flowers is my favorite, just breathtaking.
