Hello from Canada =)

Hello all,

I'm a total newbie to this photography thing but I'm looking forward to learning lots about it. I've wanted a dslr for the longest time, but I never made the leap because I couldn't justify the purchase. I was always worried that I wouldn't get enough use out of it. Well, I finally made the dive. I pre-ordered the k30 and I am anxiously waiting for it's arrival. Here's the silly part... The body isn't here yet but I seem to already be addicted. I just purchased the FA 77mm...

Hopefully this obsession won't get too out of control!

I think you're very wise to start out with a quality lens. My first two lenses were the Tamron 18-250mm and the FA 43 ltd.
Things did get a bit out of control for a while but it's become more manageable lately (now that I've bought everything ;~)

Welcome from another Canuck. Dave is right, starting off with a good lens like the FA 77 is a great idea (though will likely lead to a more expensive variant of LBA since now you will want the 31, the 43, and then start looking at * lenses. K30 looks like it will be a nice camera, looking forward to seeing some real world results with it

I am hoping that it will ship out soon as well. The place I pre-ordered it from states an availability date of July 7th, but I'm not too sure how accurate that is. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Thank you for the warm welcome everyone! Ahhh... I'm already eyeing the DA* 55

Hey Eddie,

I pre-ordered from Camera Canada (Camera Canada :: Pentax :: K30 16.3MP DSLR with 18-55mm Lens BLACK)

After I placed the order, I received an email stating the estimated arrival would be July 7th. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for the best.
