K30 vs. K-01 What am I missing?
May 24, 2012

Looking at the specs of the K30, it isn't clear what the advantage of the K-01 is if you're primarily interested in still photography. Both have the same sensor, the same LCD, the same focus peaking, and the same image processing system. On the K-30 you also get a viewfinder, weather sealing, faster autofocus if you are willing to use the viewfinder, and possibly better IBIS (if it's the same as in the K-5).

I really like the K-01, I've been a big defender of it, but I don't really know how I could justify buying it now. The price isn't all that different and it seems as though I could use the K30 the same way I would use the K-01 for stills. Am I missing something?I know the K-01 could be better if you shoot video, but what is it offering over the K30 for stills?
