I'm thinking of buying the K-r, I have no experience or training at all. What attracts me to the camera is the fact that I can use any of the lenses that have ever been made for Pentax. Ideally I would purchase the camera body alone for 600-700 and some decent old lenses for 50-100.

What do people think? Any other recommendations with the budget i'm working with?

It seems like a good camera from reading different reviews. But i would still go for a Nikon or Canon. Simply because if you're the only one you know with a Pentax, you won't be able to swap/borrow lenses and other gear...

I wouldn't say that's a good reason to buy the Pentax KR unless you already have an extensive Pentax lens collection. You can get a Nikon or Canon body for the same price and then you have the benefit of the two largest manufactures ever.
