      A brilliant dslr.

      I bought this for £319.99 from Jessops. Included was the 18-50mm lens. I have since bought the 70-200 & 80-300 sigma compatible lenses. I am not a professional photographer but the photographs I have produced are fantastic. The macro setting for close up photography is brilliant, I like taking pictures of flowers and it captures them perfectly. The colour on prints is really good too. I suggest as with anything you take time to read the manual as its worth it to use all of its features. Pentax lenses can be quite pricey but tamron and sigma both produce compatible lenses for a fraction of the price! The only downside is no regargeable batteries just aa batteries which drain quite quickly. a video setting would have been nice too but its a great reliable camera. Its a stylish looking camera too with a large lcd display to the rear.Overall I would say don't follow the canon crowd and give Pentax a go.

        Excellent camera for beginners, with plenty of functionality to keep you going.

        Price paid: £369.99

        Product Description:
        This is a review of the Pentax K-r with 18-55mm lens and optical zoom 3. It has 12.4 megapixels and a 3" LCD viewing screen as well as high speed 6 frames per second continuous shooting.

        My experience:
        I am an entry level photographer. I have been taking photos on a recreational basis for about a year and have borrowed friends Digital SLR cameras on weekends. I have been looking to buy a camera for about 6 months and have read review after review....exhausting! I finally took the plunge and invested in this Pentax K-r, and I do not regret it!!
        This camera produces the high quality pictures you would expect from an SLR. It has a lot of features, so there are many options to explore and develop your photography skills. I find the menu options very easy to navigate and I think it is very accessible for people moving on from a compact camera. The camera is very comfortable to hold, and I felt instantly 'at home' with it.
        Having had experience of using my friends camera's - one a Nikon and the other a Canon, I do not regret my choice of a Pentax. Comparatively speaking, I believe the Pentax is excellent value for money.

        Drawbacks:
        There is no HDMI port
        May not be suitable for advanced photographers.
