11 days until I get mine, black model, body only, and Im passing my K20D to a friend along with the kit zoom, so I was thinking Id be prime only. That thought lasted approx. 4 hrs until I picked up a DA 12-24 F4 very cheap off ebay, it was advertised as broken, so will see what state it is in when it arrives as it will be worth repairing...
Roll on 07/02/13 - I want my K30!!!

Bought mine in Japan. I spent the extra cash and bought the 18 - 135mm. I've only taken photos around the house so far - going out hiking today and very excited to see what it can do. It's my first SLR camera so I've lots to learn.

According to B&H, only a couple of pre-orders were shipped out to PF members. I hope the K-30 is in fact more popular than that! Post here if you've got one
Have K10 and Kr and love both, but with my new K30 I finally feel like I have a great camera with no significant issues.

My blue one arrived two days ago, in great shape...So first thing was loading firmware update 1.01, then today 1.02 for K-30 AND K-01. Taking the usual stupid indoor pictures to make sure it focuses and all--does it ever! And the flash is tall enough to use 16-45 more extensively (though still not at 16).

Just recently upgraded my *istD to a black K30 kit with Sigma 18-200mm. A couple of other lenses have also now been added along with a new bag.

Very happy and with reinvigorated motivation my photography is heading in new directions

I went with the black body only, I have an old Km I've been using so this is a big step up. So far it's been very easy to understand and set up now I just have to test my skills!

Pulled the trigger on a blue, and passed on WR lenses to grab an UWA instead. Loving focus peaking, its opening an entirely new amount of usability for me with my manual lenses.

Got my K-30 with the 18-135mm kit last week. Loving it so far. Still a lot to learn as I am new to the whole Pentax system.

Black body with the 18-55WR kit, purchased middle of December.
I like it so much, got a K-01 with the 40mm pancake yesterday, for a ridiculously inexpensive price.

Count me in, my black body arrived today! Now I start saving for a good lens.

(I have 3 lenses from before btw, I'm not sitting here with a K-30 body and no lens to use it with! )

ordered my blue (wish they sold the orange in the states) one with the 18-55 wr glass today. wanted the longer lens but wife's gonna freak with my spending $759. Of course that does not include the 32 gb sandisk extreme ($35) or the b+w uv filter ($32)-- I kinda "hid" them on another card. have some sigma glass from 1988 to try out-- made in japan--they have to be good.
