Hello! New to Pentax, Second DSLR

Hello! As the title says, I'm new to Pentax (I actually don't have one yet), but looking to upgrade from my Olympus E-520 to a K-x or K-r. I've been lurking on here since I was steered towards Pentax, for the lens reviews and other advice, and figured since I'm about to buy, I should join and introduce myself.

I shoot just for fun, and my pictures probably reflect that, but I have a great time doing it, and am looking to move to a platform with video so I can start dabbling in that as well. My main subjects are my parents beautiful Shetland Sheepdog, my 2 kittens (quickly becoming cats..), cars/motorsports, and family members.

Glad to be a part of the community!

Welcome - I'd go for what's new and covered under warranty- get the K-r! Who knows, there might be some nice deals on black friday!

I'd definitely love to go for the K-r, but for the price of just the body of a new K-r, I can get the K-x with 2 lenses, and a memory card!

Black Friday is something I hadn't thought of though - I might have to try to hold out until then just in case.
