Just Switched from D300 to K-r, Looking for advice, suggestions
Oct 5, 2011

Hello Everyone,

I've been shooting with a D300 for the last 3 years at work. I've never been completely happy with it but since it is provided by the company I work for I haven't complained.

However I decided to buy a new camera for home and want to try something different. So after several weeks of reading reviews, forums, bugging other photographers I know (and begging the wife to let me spend the cash) I just ordered the K-r kit with the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 and 55-300mm f/4-5.8 Lenses and added a flash, the AA battery adapter, and a basic set of filters. I also picked up a Pentax brand 50mm f/2.0 MF prime cheap.

I've never used Pentax before (which is one of the many reasons I picked it). I know I'll outgrow the kit lenses pretty quick. So what lenses/accessories do you recommend for the K-r to round it out?

Thanks in advance.
