I'm neither angry nor a fan boy. I've also never said that the Kr is perfect.

I said I don't have the FF or BF problem that has plagued others.

I have nothing to prove to you or anyone else, only to myself. If you believe that 100% of the Kr (s) produced suffer this problem then move on to anohter camera.
Personally I think that's a pretty moronic position to take.

What is the benifit of me testing for a 4th time? If I posted a shot that showed the problem you'd scream I told you so and if it didn't show the problem you'd scream that the test wasn't set up properly or some other lame argument. You're mind set is already made up.

If yours suffers the problem then do something about it besides posting on a forum and accusing others of lying and whether you admit it or not that's what you're doing.

majority of cameras suffer shooting indoors. please refer my posts above. when there's lask of light, the sensor will be affected/ be less effective. it will help to you a faster lens. however you can ask anyone, when it comes to low light, you will need to manual focus. this why your skills comes in. nevertheless, the kit lens are superb in 'ambient light' but it's not really designed to do manual focusing ie very loose focus ring.
your best bet is invest in a flash like an af360 & you'll see the difference.
however, if there's budget limitation, i suggest you look at a canon s95. it's a p&s with a f2 aperture.
like yourself, when i got my kr, i was not 100% impressed, but as time goes by with more playing around with, it's a fantastic mc. for the price, i don't think any dslr out there can match.
it's not the camera, it's the operator.
good luck

Whichever on the intensity of the light. My point was about the frequency of indoor shooting period.

Can't use it for half the year? Are you telling me that for the ENTIRE day EVERY day for 181 days there isn't a time when you can use your camera? I live in the Rocky Mountains and even I know that's ridiculous. Credibility is being stretched beyond reason.

No, I won't contact Pentax about a problem that doesn't affect me. While I am not unsympathetic to the plight of the K-r users who have an issue, I'm a satisfied customer. The complaints should reflect accurately those who have a problem.

Perhaps you should return your K-r and get a weather sealed camera/lens so you can shoot all year long. :)
