New Pentax Owner

Hello Everyone.
I am new to fact I'm new to photography. My new Camera (K-r) is my first ever DSLR so sorry in advance for any bugging for answers i may do or any ignorance i may show. I have been on this site since getting the camera but only as a guest. Now I am a member and hope to be buying all you lenses very soon, I have a bug...and I must buy.
So far I have the kit 18-55 and a 50-200 that came with the camera but also have a K 55 f1.8 on its way and a small list that will be following. All recommendations are welcome, not sure what I will be using the camera for though, still new and is only a hobby
Thanks, Eddy

Welcome to the forum, the buying bug has another name here... she's called LBA and she's a cruel mistress.

Yes I think I have LBA. Had the camera a week and already have 4 lenses, filters, a tripod, a bag and a remote control. Just a feeeew more lenses needed. Although next on my list is a ring flash. Can anybody recommend a good budged ring flash? Any input would be much appreciated. I will have a hunt around the forum and see what info I can find
