New K-30 owner, hello from the UK

Greetings

Having not owned a DSLR since a Canon EOS350D back in the day I have been inspired recently by a colleague to bite the bullet and spend some cash .... Pentax K-30 (new) with a Sigma 17-70mm f2.8-4.0 DC Macro and an SMC Pentax 70mm-210mm f4-5.6 (both eBay) duly purchased

Still getting to grips with it, but it just feels so right (compared to a D5100 and SLT-a37) in the hand , and the IQ even with my limited abilities is outstanding - kind of camera that makes you want to just go out and start snapping!

Day 1, in the garden, come across an unlucky Dragon Fly / lucky spider situation, switch to macro, focus in and I am stunned by the level of detail in the image. Made me smile.



Looking forward to getting some useful tips, hints and tricks.

CM

Welcome aboard and great first post. I've had my K-30 for about two months now and I am still amazed.
