I generally had my mind set on buying the K-30, but I'm still waiting until it shows up in local stores. In the meantime, I read about other cameras too, and I got interested in Sony Nex 6 that's been recently announced. It is similarly priced, and has most of the features that I want. What I like about it is its small size, and that it's much quieter than the K-30 (shutter and autofocus in some lenses). But Pentax has weather sealing and OVF, which I think I'd prefer. As I said, it's not in local stores, so I haven't got the chance to try it out yet.

Could you help me make up my mind?

And do you often find the noises of the K-30 (meaning sound) disturbing (especially with the 18-55mm WR and 50-200mm WR kit lenses).

The overall question would be: Why is the K-30 better/worse than the Nex 6?

I'm not interested in video.
