I used an ist-ds from 2005 to 2014, with kit 18-55, 50-200 lightweight and very compact telezoom, and a film era FA 50mm f1.7 which is an AF lens.

I now use K30 and K3, with a nice set of lenses, though I am now using more and more M43 system, whose IQ is much better than Ist-ds and lenses are half the weight and size than APS-C.

K5 and K3 were flagship cameras, designed to last long for pro use,with magnesium alloy bodies. Their only con was the weight.

K50 and K30 were noticeably lighter, yet fully featured and with a 100% pentaprism OVF, better than the pentamirror in mots entry level cameras.

Only con was they are more prone to failures than K5 and K3.

Weight is an issue for me. I think the K-r has most of the features I need, is good in low light, and will fit my budget.

How the heck did I end up with this username?
