I recently discovered how much I enjoy photography and it didn't take long until I browsed the web for an appropriate dslr for me as a beginner. Somehow the name Pentax immediately caught my attention even though I didn't know anything other than they make cameras just as Nikon or Canon.
Even though I had "decided" for a Pentax in the back of my head I still kept searching amongst the other brands, but in the end the K-r seemed to be worth it's price. Reviews stated it as a finalist in the entry level, best choice and with best features against its competitors (of course, no camera is The Best, it's a preference of needs and taste).
Right now as I'm writing I'm on my way in 30 minutes to pick up my first dslr from the post-office: The (white) Pentax K-r. (:
Hope to see a lot from you all in the future!
