new to pentax

Hello everyone,
I purchased my first digital slr in September 2011. A pentax kr with a sigma 18-55 hsm and a pentax 55-300 f4-5.8. I've photographing for 25 years. And as of late been using a canon 710si which has been fine, but I needed better, so I chose pentax. But it seems I have some issues with the camera and 55-300 lens. I will post my problems on the kr thread. Thanks, glad I found this forum.

Welcome aboard DIGI. I understand the frustrations when changing platforms, I briefly had a Canon film camera. Was less than thrilled with the camera mostly because of unfamiliarity with the platform. I gave it to my brother who is a longtime Canon shooter and he is happy with it.. Be patient and ask lots of questions, we are a friendly bunch...Shoot and post often........Cliff
