Hi, I am looking to become a pentax user! I am really impressed with the system, and am trying to get my hands on an inexpensive k-5, but will probably end up with a k-x. Glad to have found this forum!

I also like the k-r, and am looking for deals on lenses as well.

So my new k-r is on it's way!! So excited! I also got myself some lenses, a 50-200mm, f/4-5.6, smc da Ed, an 18-55mm, f/3.5-5.6, smc da al II, and a Pentax SMCP-A 50mm f/2.0 Lens. Now I just need to be patient and wait for it to arrive! A least that gives me some time to do more reading and research on my lenses.

That's a decent starting kit, you'll have fun. Remember you can probably search the forum and find threads which already address your questions, but feel free to ask- we're a genial bunch.
