Hello from Chicagoland

Not entirely new new to pentax line as i owned K200D few years back but new to the forum...I have just purchased K30 with 50mm f1.8 and Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 as walkabout lens.
After owning K200d back in 2009 i switched to Micro 4/3 system from panasonic but due M4/3 limitations I got Pentax DSLR and after about 200 initial shots i must say it was a right decision going Pentax...awesome camera, fantastic High ISO handling unlike M4/3 format (much smaller sensor) and superior at tracking fast mowing object like my crazy golden retriever ;-)

Having baby on the way (3 weeks away) I'm sure my K30 will be used a lot.

Enjoy the K30, and prepare for the baby by shooting under candle light and making as little noise as possible... IMHO, babies are cutest when asleep.

Welcome from just a little farther west. I'm sure you'll enjoy the 30.
