You can find reviews of the Tamron 28-300mm zoom lens at the following websites:

It's not one that I would go for because it has a low F number and I am not keen on wide focal length ranges.

can one buy a cable release or wireless shutter release for a Pentax KR. Lots are advertised as fitting but they don't because I cant find where the fitting is on the camera.
Any ideas. thanks Machin

Jump onto ebay and by a cheap third party remote shutter release. Only a few dollars and works fine. It is IR, but seems to have good range and work from even behind the camera.

agree about doing the eBay route. I did for mine and for a few dollars had what is a universal remote for several camera brands that works just fine with the K-r (and the K200d I had before). No need to buy a Pentax brand for the IR remote in this case.

Let me clarify the original post... or at least add some information here.

To use the IR remote as is suggested here, you have to put the camera drive mode in Remote or Remote 3 second. This precludes the use of other drive modes.

With the kind of remote for which the the OP is looking, you can put the camera in exposure bracketing drive mode and fire off the bracket with the remote. This kind of thing is possible on the K20D and K10D. So for example, you want to fire multiple shots at one time using the remote. You cannot do this with the IR remote. With the radio type remote and a K20D, you can put the drive mode in multiple exposure and simply hold the button down. it will fire until you let off the shutter release.

Think of it this way... it is not so much a remote like the IR remote as it is just like pressing the shutter button with your finger. It would increase your options on the K-r...

I agree, this would be a great thing. No such luck.

Thanks to Dr. G and all. I have a IR remote but only works from front. Why dont they make them fire from back as well? You ned this for long
shutter speeds not just for getting in on picture. Wireless or cable dont work on KR.
Thanks you guys.....Machin

Hi Roy,
Shame it doesn't work from the rear - especially as the Pentax forum guy said it should?
I have the same limitation with my Sony - but I suppose the designer had self potraits in mind. Also I can get a cable remote.
Hope you have some good fun with it.
