Newbie from Minnesota

Hello all,

I just pulled the trigger on a K-r and am anxiously looking forward to it's arrival.

Main reasons for purchase: liked the feel/size, contrariness, and I inherited an ME and a couple of lenses so it seems like fun to try to use them.

This forum was also helpful in the decision.

I'm pretty much a rookie at this, but I've bought "Understanding Exposure" and am looking forward to learning a lot. I've had a couple SLRs in the past (Canon EF, Nikon N65) but never really got the hang of it. Time to change that.

The forum is a wonderful place to look for advice... we'll have you so ocnfused your head hurts in no time. But really, as long as you keep it simple, one issue at a time, the guys here cover all the bases. Someone thinks of almost everything. Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, will be to figure out which advice to acceot.
