So i've decided to get another Pentax DSLR.

I thought long and hard read all the discussions between the K5 and the Kr but this time i'm doing it with a few select primes 35 ltd and 21 ltd to start and i choose the Kr becuase of all the issues/price it was the better buy for me...this will be as before my travel /walk about DSLR system, i'll still have in tow a compact of some sort but it can't be argued...Pentax makes really lightweight systems but big on features, overall industry pricing can be argued.

The smaller camera bodies certainly do well with the primes and other, lighter lenses. I found after downsizing from k-7 to k-x the lenses I liked before felt more front-heavy. And the k-r allows more in the budget for those Limited lenses, that's a good thing! No doubt I miss some of the switches & dials of the k-7, but not enough to justify the k-5 expense right now. Hopefully I can manage for another generation!
