Blue K-30 versus K-5IIs on the way
Apr 1, 2013

Just pulled trigger on a K-30 and 18-135 versus k-5IIs and 18-135 for a scuba trip next weekend.  Waited as long as possible for possible K-3(?) announcement.  By getting the K-30 I kept exactly $500 in hand for the upcoming K-3(?).  Had I bought the K-5IIs I would have had a harder time justifying any new model.  Would have like the K-5IIs, now, of course, esp. with the set of Limiteds I have, but if the new flagship comes out this summer I'll get that sell the K-30 -- and at $540, I can almost justify it as a slightly used christmas present for someone.  The 18-135 is probably a keeper in any case, for rain and splash conditions, unless the roadmapped DA* zoom turns out to be WR and irresistible.

Yes, this is merely a ramble.
