Re: A New DSLR Camera

I like the way it feels in my hands, it uses an older Pentax lens I had, it can run off AA batteries (with an adapter) if needs be.

I was really split between the K-r and the 3100. The K-r kit lens felt smoother (focus/zoom), the front lens element doesn't rotate on focusing and it does exposure bracketing.

Those points combined with the rather subjective points on feel (etc) and the very close price point made the K-r my choice over the 3100.

(I also have a soft spot for Pentax... my first "real" camera was a Pentax MV back in the early 80s)
