Getting K-3; Sell my K-30 or keep it?

Wow thanks for all the advice. Seems like pretty much everyone is in agreement about keeping the K-30. I agree it's an absolutely fantastic camera. I'm mostly a landscape photographer, but I still understand some situations where it would be useful to have two cameras for two quick different focal lengths. I think I'll try this out for a couple months and if I truly find myself not using the K-30 I'll sell it and put that money towards a new lens. I also think I'm going to sell my MX-1, because it looks like it's actually selling for more than I bought it at on eBay right now, and I'll put this money towards a new lens as well.
Again thank you so much for advice. You all completely changed my thoughts on this.

Thanks for the advice!
I was able to buy my new K3, which is arriving tomorrow, without needing to sell any current gear, and so I don't have a big necessity to sell, but I'm thinking I might be able to buy a new lens or something with the money. Do you really think there will be enough situations that I won't be able to use my K3 to warrant essentially $300? One thing I didn't mention is I have a MX-1 which I use when I'm backpacking or just want a small camera. That's what I kinda use as my "back-up" camera now.

So I've finally done what I've been dreaming of for a while and purchased a k30. I was wondering what I should do with my k30 now. It doesn't seem like I could get very much from it by selling it, around $300, so I was wondering if it would be a good idea to just keep it as a back up/"disposable" camera. Please give me your thoughts, thanks!

I would really appreciate some feedback on this photo. It's taken in a park in Rennes, France and I'm very new to taking photos of people and not just landscapes :)

I took this picture a couple days ago at Arches National Park in Utah. This picture is about 3 minutes after the morning light first touched the arches. I would love some critique on this photo. Thanks!

They are all very nice.
The only things that I would improve is also keeping the subject in the first one in focus. Having the rest of the photo out is nice, but you want whatever the subject is in focus.
The second and third ones are great. You did a good job with the depth of field in the second one.

Slow shutter release?

To speed up the time in between shots, you need a faster memory card. The faster the write speed, the less time in between shots.
Im not sure about the delay in shutter because I don't own the wg3. Hopefully someone else will be able to help you with that.
Also, welcome to the forums!
