Greetings from Hamilton, Ontario

I haven't used an SLR since my old film Minolta back in the 1990s. I have missed SLR cameras, and am currently doing copious research on what to buy. I keep returning to the Pentax K-R (after leaning towards the Nikon D90 or D5100 for a while).

I am having considerable difficulty finding one in-stock in Ontario, so I might have to pop across the border in the near future.

Barring that, I might try to buy a used K-X and play with it a while, and wait for the new Pentax model to come out.

Excited to start this journey.

Welcome to the forum, good to have you on board.Here's a thought, it's cheaper in the long run to buy a model camera you'll grow into than one you'll grow out of too soon. I learned this the hard way.
