    Hi killjoysg2k, yr Raynox need not remain a white jumbo; yank it out of the dry cab & join bro Detritus' macro outing tomorrow

As i am quite new to DSLR, my question is whether the kit lens DAL 18mm-55mm and 50mm-200mm good? am i better off getting the body only and get my lens elsewhere?

    Although it's my first foray into the DSLR realm, i decided not to go with the more popular brands as i am quite confused with all the model number these brands churned out. When i chance upon the Pentax K-r's review, i was rather impressed by the capabilities of this DSLR and the price tag. Has anyone here been using the K-r? Able to share your opinion on you experience?

    My other concern is the availability of lens since some of my friends mentioned that the variety of lens for Pentax is rather limited as compared to the major 2 brands. May i know how true is that? Sorry for the barrage of questions.

    BTW, this forum is really a great place to source for information. Cheers.
    Hi there, im also a newbie here, just got my kr 12days ago.. haa... i would say the kit lens is gd enuff for a start, but also depends what you wanna shot. initially i wanted to get the 50-300 as well but thinking that i wont travel for the next year or so, den i decide to get the kit lens + 35mm! you wont regret with the 35mm lens, as its on my kr most of the time. partly is due to i've some issue with the body AF therefore seldom use the 18-55.

    SLR have one of the best pricing out there, i've called and check with others store, but decide to go with SLR as they're nice to talk with.

    don bother what majority ppl get, go with your feel and most impt ur budget. you wont look back after getting the kr. not to forget, ppl here are veri friendly and helpful...

    the knowledge is not pentax-specific if u look at how canon, nikon, sony, olympus or even PNS users shoot macro, the fundamentals and some of the gear used are the same

    Sure Donald, was mulling on slotting this macro shoot in my schedule after my pre-dawn religious activity but had to forgo it as I am leaving to Kong Kong fishing village at 9am. The sea-food lunch there is too delicious a temptation to fight!
