It's a photographer's camera
After a month and a half with the K-r and about 3000 shots, I may say that this camera is near perfect "for its class". Perfect here I mean very good IQ, well-balanced detail:noise at high ISO, ample of functions essential to photography and probably the best in price/performance today.
It's responsive with good ergonomics, good AF speed for its class and a surprisingly fast live-view AF. The button layout is easy to understand and the menu is intuitive. I didn't even need to use the user manual. The shake reduction works well. Flash exposure is good.
I haven't used the fun filters and video functions so no comment on those.
Overall, the K-r is a "photographer's camera".
*Should have included the AA battery cradle as standard equipment.
If not for the auto white balance AF front focus issue under tungsten light (which is a BIG flaw) it would have been perfect and I would have given it a 5 star rating. The shutter noise is, well, quite "intimidating" but I personally don't find that an issue and kinda like it a bit.
