K-r and DA21 combo
Jun 14, 2011

Hi fellow Pentaxian ...

Been a lurker here for years and years, and a proud owner of film Pentax cameras in the past (Super Program, SF-1, MZ-5). Always loved photography but priorities changes, especially in the $$ department (family, kids ...)

Now that I've saved pennies over the years, I have my heart set on a K-r. I have some questions which hopefully the members can help answer:

  • Is the low-light front-focus issue a big deal ?

  • Can I pair the K-r to a DA21 for a walk-round camera ? I'd liked to shoot scenery, people and of course, my kids

  • I'd liked a compact package, and would it be better if I pair this with the popular Tammy or Sigma zoom, as this will be the versatility ... or should I be content with the DA21 ?

Lastly, what are some of the settings you would recommend so I get nice looking pictures without too much PP ? I don't have too much free times (re: small kids)

Thank you kindly for any advice ...
