Excited to be here, plumped for the K-30

Hi everyone,

After some exhaustive research I've decided on Pentax and the K-30 as my first DSLR. After a long break from photography (well making do with camera phones and point and shoots if that counts) I've got the bug again after having a play, and two holidays with my girlfriends 60D. The temptation to stick with Canon was great but Pentax just seemed to win all over on quality, features and value.

I'm on a tight budget but also hope to make some money from my photography if possible so I think the K-30 was the only thing out there that met my needs.

This forum and community played a part in my decision too, didn't find anything quite like it out there for the Canikon folks.

I look forward to contributing in the future
