New DSLR k7 owner- Hello!

Just new to the DSLR bandwagon from melbourne australia, I heartedly chose a pentax k7 over a micro four thirds solution.
I own a Panasonic LX3 and that left me aching for something a bit more- (still its fantastic for a compact, great for travel, macro shots and size)

So I decided one day to invest in a DSLR, I walked into michaels and bargained hard for a pentax k7 18-55 al wr kit, extreme iii 8gb sandisk and a rocket blower for a good price.

After taking some pictures, its made me very happy with my purchase- the camera is fantastic. I want to get a fa 43 f1.9 prime lens next! (if i can find one cheap... )

Apparently it will arrive today at home, so going to check the mail on my lunch break
Can't wait to get that prime lens out and take some shots!

Still looking at how to use the camera itself. Menu is quite complicated heh

Hi, Welcome.
I was in michaels the other day too. I had to tear myself away before I did any damage!
