Welcome to the forum... , not many start with such good glass. I'm interested in seeing your pictures. Are you coming from point and shoots or film?

May I get constructive feedback ref. K30

Just got back from a 6 mile hike off the Skyway outside Tellico Plains fly fishing for Native Brook Trout. I am passionate about fly fishing in the back country and purchased this camera specifically to save these memories.

Read everyones comments reference the Welcome. Thank You!!!

Coming straight from a Nikon D500 point and shoot and a Canon D10 Power shot water proof point and shoot.

I purchased the 60-250mm and the 100mm only because of this forums' comments and reviews and they sounded perfect for what I will be doing. Close ups of amazing wildlife and the need to pull in a Bald Eagle or grazing Elk that I see all the time. Thank you.

My reason for joiningyour forum is in hopes of giving and getting advice. I am new to DSLRs but think I have a good one to start with.

I will post pics shortly for anyone to give some great advice if thats ok?

Exited about Pentax,
Breck

1st K30 Pictures

[B]If you have read the previous thread then I will pick up where I left off. Appreciate any assistance, guidance and help that you may see in my pictures. These are my first pics and I hope it's ok to post. These were taken in the Auto Mode, Scene mode was Macro with the18-55 that came with the camera. My 100mm and 60-250mm should arrive today from amazon!!









Normally get a better shot of the trout but in a big hurry to release. Sorry.



Please don't beat me up here. I am new to DSLR. I know the K30 comes out of the box shooting well. Just curious if the new glass will make a difference in these type of shots.

Thank You,

Breck
