    Just came home. This is exciting! The first time I looked at the Kr pics, the word "nice!" inadvertently blurted out from my mouth. Yes! I think Pentax has really got it right this time! I had totally loathed the design of the kx. The Kr is much more k7-like. No more ugly silver lining and cheapist plasticky built. It's not a pro-spec no doubt but I would really get it if I were to start out in photography (hint: Im waiting for the K5).

    The lenses are great too. I would get the yellow one! If it performs decent, it would be a great no-need-to-pamper lens for walkarounds. The idea is totally cool too - no other camps have done it!
    I say the lens is the soul of a camera. What about the body? Well, it's just the body...

    I want the Pink color lens!!!!!

    sad gotten the DA Ltd 35mm 2.8 already

    if not will use the budget for a 50mm macro + the cute pink 35mm lens for similar price =)

    really feel very happy to be a pentax user, 1st DSLR to go the "lifestyle" product route with almost no additional cost passed on to consumer unlike mr steve job.

    This would be an awesome upgrade for K-x users, whom have hard time with Auto focus in poor lighting condition: AF assist- Dedicated lamp

    As well improve Live view AF: Contrast detection + Face detection / Contrast detection /Phase difference detection.

    And Natural-Bright-Matte II focusing screen for Viewfinder.

    Not much changes from K-x, but huge impact IMO

    Goodness! This is really creative man!. So far no one else has come up with a product that has such a cool factor over non-camera enthusiasts. Imagine this being the iphone of te camera world! And you pentax can sell custom kits for people to make their camera their own!

    On the K-r, it really is cool. man should have waited before I bought but if that was the case, I would not have been able to use the camera the past few weeks. I like the dual battery mode. Can't do without the AAs. So convenient plus i have lots of them!

    The other features are not compelling though but if mated to a 35 f/2.4, it would be great. Most of the comments here mistook it for a Limited lens but in reality, it is really an entry level prime lens at a very affordable price. Kudos to pentax for introducing it because it is a nice bridge for newbies to get a prime before thinking of moving up. 35mm is a very nice focal length..not too long or short. I do like small and light lenses (think DA40)

    We are shifting to somewhere a bit closer to the city 'cause my wife is a city girl. I myself would rather stay in Gombak ...
