New K30 Owner

I registered on the forum after using K-30 for a month, was reading feedbacks/review in the background.

I am a Cannon guy still own
Canon Elan II2 + cheap 50mm lens, ( For last 10+ years )
Canon Rebel XT + Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM ( For last 6+ years )
Canon point and shoot camera. ( For last 1+ years ) -- Mainly used for video.

Rebel XT and 17-40mm f/4L is good below ISO 800 , If you don't need lot of MegaPixels,
and if there is sufficient light, no rain/ snow /dusty environment etc.

Started searching a new SLR to replace XT and recently bought a K30 from ADORAMA with kit 18-135mm WR lens.

I took K30 to Disney World and Universal Studio, and shot around 30GB worth of pictures.
Plan was to buy a new SLR and sell old one.
The low light photos are great ( Disney Electrical Parade) but still I'm not COMPLETELY happy with my experience with the K30. Firmware is latest.

Well - This is just intro post, I will be posting all detail with pictures soon ...

Q: How many pictures I can upload. Or I can post a link to review some pictures.

Thanks,
Sandeep Singh

I am preparing the complete report with shots and will be asking for suggestions. It quite possible that I was wrong in camera setting.
One I can mention immediately here and requires no evidence pictures.

Camera Freeze : At least once in a day.

Turn off /on camera resolved the problem every time. Could be over using the camera OR Orlando's 90+ temperature but not this camera is weather sealed.

see you in the next post with all pictures Good + bad loaded.
