Hello from Michigan!

I've been browsing these forums for a few weeks now, mostly doing background research. I'm planning on buying a K-30 sometime over the next week or so (when I hit a lull in my school work so I'm not too distracted ). It'll be my first DSLR, though I've got a comfortable technical background regarding cameras. I'll be stepping up from a bridge/superzoom Casio EX-FH20 I've had for about 3 years now (still a fun camera for capturing high-speed videos at 210-1000 fps). I'm really looking forward to the K-30's fantastic high-ISO noise performance for astrophotography, which is one of my primary interests.

When I'm not reading about cameras, I'm spending most of my time working towards an aerospace engineering degree.

Hi David, and welcome to the Forums.

Aerospace engineering? Good on you! I attended a World Engineering Forum in Washington some years ago, where the keynote speaker was Dan Goldin, the soon-to-be CEO of NASA. He talked about how young people of his generation were inspired by Kennedy's "to the moon and back" speech. I'm glad to see that young people are still inspired to reach upward (speaking as an engineer of Goldin's generation).

Best of luck, and enjoy your K30.
