new K30 User

Hi All,
First time Pentax user. Just got a K30 with 18-135 from Santa, took it out today for a test run at Duxford Air Museum. I just let the camera do its thing - auto iso 100-6400, a mix of auto and manual focus with auto 11 points or manually selected focus points everything else set to default. Very happy with the basic handling and relatively high iso results - uploaded a few choice pics straight out of the camera without any pp.

Happy New Year!

Nice gift indeed, and I see you are already using it well!
Good stuff, but with a DSLR you pretty much will have to start shooting raw and doing your own processing eventually
Have fun and happy holidays to you as well.
