Ni Hao from China

Hi to everyone!

About 10 hours ago I bought myself a K-r. I had no choice really, and yet I sort of chose it nearly 4 years ago, because when I came to China from the UK I gave away all my Samsung/Pentax dslr gear, but couldn't bear to relinquish my Pentax-M 50 mm f1.4 prime! I have a good Lumix point and shoot, but something about compact cameras seems to encourage mere snapshooting I think.

Sooo, I have the k-r, the 18-55, the 55-300, and my old flame the f1.4. The battery with the k-r needed recharging, so I had to use a set of AA's, which have now run out, I have taken so many rubbish practise shots!

The k-r is superb, in my opinion, but brings with it a sense of responsibility - I daren't take the kind of rubbish pics I have specialised in during my.... 50 years of interest in photography. My Laopo would kill me!

I'm gonna need all the help I can get...

Welcome to the forums and welcome back to Pentax. You made a good choice keeping the M50 1.4; a sweet lens. You have a nice & versatile compact kit there -- enjoy.
