New boy on the block

Hello everyone
I've just joined the forum, after reading various postings, reviews etc. Seems a very impressive, helpful and friendly group.
I have just bought a Pentax Kr and am very impressed with it. Not new to Pentax, as I used to have a P30t a long time ago. Since then I've had a succession of Canon Ixuses (or should the plural be Ixi?) - graduating to Lumix TZ series for my digital photography. Film photography has been taken care of by Olympus OM-1, 2, 3 & 4Ti. Now that I have the Kr (which is great, allowing use of old lenses far more readily than an Olympus E-510 did) I am sticking with just an OM-1. My photographic interests are mainly architecture and macro, and using available light rather than flash.
No doubt I'll be asking lots of questions in the future, hopefully can answer some too!

Welcome Dom. I'm big on available-light macro myself, although I've been experimenting with diffused flash or even diffused reflected sunlight recently. Hope you enjoy the K-r as I expect you will, given your broad photographic experience to date.
