I'm relatively new to photography coming from a Canon G12 which I really enjoyed. Now it's time to move up. I'm looking at a Pentax k-30 or Canon T2i and am having a hard time making a decision.

I'm just on a tight budget. Price points on used ones are almost $200 different. I can't justify the $ difference unless someone can point me to a good deal on a used one, body only.

There's one on the marketplace here for $580 with a bag and some other extras:

We have a comparative review of the T4i, K-30, and Nikon D5100 here which you might be interested in reading:
Canon T4i vs Nikon D5100 vs Pentax K-30 - Introduction -

The T2i obviously has lower specs in some areas (including no touch screen), so the K-30 would probably be a clear winner in comparison.
