k-01 or k-r?
8 months ago

I consider myself as a hobbyist ever since owning a Powershot A560 when I was 13, 7 years ago. I haven't used my camera for a long time due to school, yet I would still shoot with my phone or a colleague's DSLR during school events. Recently, my phone's rear camera stopped working, and my old camera is now worn out (my brother used the camera for quite a long time), thus I'm looking for a new camera.

I like to shoot in low light, thus sensor size is important. DOF also seem to be important. I'm looking at 3 options at the moment:

1) a used Pentax K-01 body, around $280, + a K-mount lens at $40

2) a brand new K-01 which costs $400

3) a used k-r, around $300

I'm also looking at Pentax MX-1 yet I figured that I would like more control on my lens.

I'm on a limited budget, $400 max. Any suggestions?
