New to Pentax

Hello, I am new to DSLR and Pentax K-r. I only have had my camera a few months and hope it is a good fit for me. I previously used Canon Powershot point and shoot type camera. I hope to learn and improve on my photography.

Hi Stacie, Welcome.

You are now an official Pentaxian.

I wish I was young enough to be new to Pentax, but I go back to 1978 with the brand.

Happy shooting, and here is your first test:

Watch out for LBA.

Your job is to figure out what LBA is before you are overcome by it.

LBA? Lens buying addiction? Hehe, I think I can control myself but I do know I need a few different lenses. A good macro and a good telephoto to start.

Thank you for the welcome. I did use a Pentax SLR back in highschool that shot 35mm film. But that was so long ago. I hope I made a good choice.
