K-30 owner from Western NY

I've just purchased my first Pentax after years of being a loyal Nikon owner. I got out of professional photography years ago and sold all my Nikon equipment. I guess you never lose the photo bug though. I'm back in. So after tons of research I decided on the K-30 over the Nikons and Canons in that pricepoint. I'm still learning the camera, but so far so good. I would already like to thank mbukal here in the forum for his genius idea of a battery grip for the K-30.
A Pentax Hopeful,

Welcome! I'm sure the K30 won't disappoint. Just make sure to pick a prime or two, that's what being a Pentaxian is all about!
