Pentax and DSLR newbie from the UK

Hello forum,

DSLR newbie here wanting to say hi - I recently purchased a K-r to suppliment my Panasonic LX5.

I'm trying to take my time getting to know the lenses I got with my camera and not rush out to buy everything I see but it's really hard! It's funny how I never needed another lens for my LX5, putting up with a 24-90mm f2.0 for the last year but now that I have a shiney new DSLR I seem to want a couple of manual primes, an FA/DA prime, a constant zoom etc. This is going to be an expensive trip but I'm looking forward to it.

Cheers,

Matt

Welcome to the first day of the rest of your life trying to resist the great temptations of buying yet another lens.

And welcome to the forum!

Welcome Matt !
It needn't be an expensive trip. There are a heck of a lot of second hand lenses out there.
Have fun with that K-r, it's a really neat camera
cheers
Pete
