Another newbie

Hi all,
happy to join this great forum. Have really been enjoying the K30, K50, comparison and lens posts. Thank you to all who have so far shared their knowledge and experience - I'm sure I echo other users who say they have been valuable and informative.
As an old Pentax-er from way back, I'm spreading the love from film SLR (slide) to digital, finally! Mirror-motor spindle gone in old MZ-50, so time to join the 21st Century. Looking to marry K30 or K50 with Sigma 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 DC Macro HSM as walk-around and travel lens. Happy to say wife is keen to assist in the fiscal arrangements!
Now back to work ... after another quick peek at the K30, K50 and WR lens comments!

Welcome aboard! It's a great time to get the K30, prices have dropped significantly. But don't forget about the Marketplace here for used equipment - that's where you'll find the real bargains.

Welcome aboard and should your wife be looking for any other fiscal projects to get involved with, I have several on the go.
