Unless there are major reasons to the contrary, I'd tend to advise folks to stick with the system they've become familiar with.  That said, the K-30 can open up some interesting areas of photography that its competitors are weaker at, namely, macro and legacy lenses, due to the in-body stabilization and focus peaking.  I agree with others here that a DA 35mm/2.4 with stabilization should work as well as a faster but unstabilized lens.  Video is another factor--not a Pentax strong suit if that's important to you.

I've always got to remind myself that the limitations of my equipment are insignificant compared to the limitations of my skill and knowledge.  For 99% of what most folks shoot, the differences between these cameras will be undetectable.
