Default Returning the Kx and getting the Kr!

The few added features are just what I was looking for on the Kr that the Kx was lacking.

I kept reading folks saying it wasn't worth the extra $300 for the added features, but it's really not $300 if you buy the two kit lenses.

The Kx with both lenses cost $692.86
And the Kr with both lenses is $899.00
That's only $206.00 more for the Kr, and to me, having the added features are well worth it.

in my opinion the faster af would make it worth the extra 200 bucks. But for some the AF points is also a nice push. So if you wanted those features, the price is justified.

yes, the KR looks to be a nice middle-model between the kx and k5. if i were buying pentax that would be an attractive choice if my budget didnt allow the k5.
