New K-r Owner


I've been lurking around this site for a couple of weeks, about time to do the introduction...
I recently acquired my first dSLR, the Pentax K-r with the 18-55mm and 55-300mm lenses.

I've been shooting for a lot of years, starting with 35mm film in high school (late 80's); migrated to digital as the quality improved, and just made the leap to the more 'pro' circuit.

The first day I took the dSLR out for a field trip, I had several moments of great frustration and desire to send the camera back - until I got some good shots. I realized later what some of my issues were (AF doesn't work through glass well, even says so in the book...)

I really appreciate this forum, it's been helping me with the newbie to dSLR learning curves!

Welcome to the forum.
Good start to your photography - getting out and shooting.
Well done.I'm sure you'll find the K-r easy to grow into.
Hope you enjoy the forum as much as you do your photography.
