Hello from UK

Hi, I became a Pentax fan when I researched for my first DSLR last year and found that the K-r just jumped out saying 'Buy ME !'
I reckonned that no other camera can come near it at the price taking into account image quality, ease of use, comfortable to hold and the built-in shake reduction which means you can use old manual lenses etc, etc.

I got the twin lens kit in UK for less than 450 and was very fortunate that when I was looking for a longer zoom lens (up to 300mm) Amazon just happened to have the DA 55-300 at half price !!!

I already had a Helios 58mm f/2 from my old Zenit camera and got an adapter from China and have used it a few times.

I've now also bought another couple of lenses off ebay, a 35mm f/3.5 prime and a Sigma epsilon 28-70 zoom.

I must say that I've found the lens reviews on this website extremely useful for researching before bidding on ebay ! So I'll post some reviews of the lenses I've bought to 'pay back' for the help.

Best wishes
