5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Camera, February 22, 2011
By 
This review is from: Pentax K-r 12.4 MP Digital SLR Camera with 3.0-Inch LCD and 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 and 55-300mm f/4-5.8 Lenses (Black) (Electronics)
This is my first Pentax. All my other cameras have been Olympus or Panasonic. There are already 1000's of in depth reviews of the K-r and K-x DSLR so i wont go into depth. I did 3 months of reasearch before purchasing the K-r. I went and tried every DSLR and the Pentax fells like it has the best build quality (Sony was close). Nikon and Canon felt very cheap and plasticky in my hand. I still havent fully learned all the functions and to fully use the K-r, but I have taken about 500 pics and almost all of them are amazing. My last camera (lumix FZ-100) only a small fraction of my pics were keepers.

The autofocus works great and is extremenly fast. I chose the K-r over the K-x because I shoot a lot of sports and wanted the faster fps. The choice of batteries in the K-r is also worth its weight in gold. For the price of the K-r (or even the k-x) I would challenge anyone to find a better DSLR in terms of build quality and Image quality. The kit lens is also very good, especially when you compair it to the kits lenses that come with other DSLR's.

I highly recommend the Pentax K-r (or K-x).
