I've bought the K-30 for recreational astrophotography. It is the first DSLR I've had and apart from snap[shots, I have managed several reasonable interval shots of sunsets, night sky and a sunrise. I'm still working out how it works.
Very impressed so far with the K-30

Mine just arrived tonight!

Contrary to the advice above, I'll be selling my K-r. I'm not made of money, and a happy wife is counting on me selling the K-r.
Absolutely 'wise' .. for myself I somehow feel I 'need' back up gear .. two cameras two lenses (for each camera) .. I'm of the 'no guts no glory' society, I change lenses while crossing rapids and in pouring rain (yet I have waterproof or weatherproof gear) .. I'm not saying be a FOOL I take every precaution up to and sometimes including not making the switch in lenses .. very often having just ONE camera/lens will help you improve your photographic skills by forcing you to re-think how to get 'THAT' shot with what you have .. If you are married it really pays to put your wife above everything you own .. the amount of anxiety avoided can yield an African safari or a trip to deepest darkest ALASKA!!

Picked up my K-30 a few weeks ago, really liking it so far.... Got it from my local Hunt's.... Already ordered a new lens (Pentax DA 35mm f/2.4) because I can already tell that my IQ is suffering from this 18-55mm WR kit lens.
