Brief introduction

I.m a retired computer customer service engineer. Had a Pentax film camera for 40 years (S1a or SV I think). Have worked my way through vavious bridge cameras for the last 10 years and currently have a K100D, my first DSLR. Have just bought a used K-r for the extra pixels and lightness.

Hello Mike, and welcome - glad you could join us!

The K-r is a very nice step up from the K100D... higher resolution but also much better low-light capability, amongst other things. Enjoy!
