New to Pentax


I have never shot pentax but my K-r is due to arrive in the mail on Wednesday. I must be honest, I only purchased this camera because of the great price. I had a Nikon that was left in the rain and I have no camera. Another reason that I purchased this K-r is because all of the pentad lenses fit all of the cameras. I have already purchased two lenses on bay.

I am planning to become a pro and will purchase a K-5 for christmas.

Welcome, you can learn a lot about your new camera on this site. I've used Nikon before too, It's good stuff, but the Pentax stuff is too, plus beiang able to buy a 50 year old lens and use it is just special. Have fun!
