I'm new to Pentax. I just got my K-30 today. Haven't even turned it on yet as the battery is still charging. Right now I only have the kit 18-55 and the 50 1.8.

I'm not totally new to using a dSLR as I formerly owned a Canon XTi. I sold it a couple years ago and switched to using a Canon S90. Why? Well, I'm disabled and don't have good fine motor control in my right hand. I was having a lot of problems with my hand and arm strength at the time so decided to get rid of everything. I haven't been happy about it. The S90 is a 'good' camera but it just doesn't fit my needs.

Anyway, long story short is that I needed an SLR again and my hand/arm are doing a bit better these days.

Nice to 'meet' everyone!
