Generally he likes the camera but he calls his "Storm Trooper" because "Xiao Bai" will have no meanng to him! :bsmilie: If only he knows how much the Kr is being sold in Singapore he will probably give it an additional thumbs up.:thumbsup:

Bottom line - We were overall very pleased with the K-r and its results. The camera is able to produce pleasing photographs in a variety of conditions, including low-light thanks to good performance when using its higher sensitivity settings. Shooting performance is quite robust, and the K-r is loaded with cool and useful exposure options that many will find handy. I would have liked to see a bit better video options, and they could have ditched the extreme ISO settings (12,800 and 25,600). That said, with a street price ranging from $650 - 850 for the zoom lens kit which includes the smc 18-55mm DAL lens, the K-r is competitively priced for an entry to mid-level dSLR; and Pentax is the only manufacture producing dSLRs with multiple colors options; like the "Storm Trooper" White unit we test.
