Re: Chasseur d'Images K-30 review

Yes they do like the K 30.

Their test summary reads:

"The K30 is a real revolution. This 'general public' reflex has the specifications of a pro.

One would fear that certain key options would have been sacrificed due to budget restrictions, but this isn't the case. Everything meets the mark.

Sure the sensor is 'only' 16Mpix, but it is a good one. Better to have 16 good mpixs than 24 bad"

Re the autofocus:
The AF is quick and to our mind accurate even if we only used the 18-55mm lens.

Operation noise: The general trend is for DSLRs to make less noise. The K30 tends to be a little noisy.

The noise issue is the only real negative report.

The ' Chasseur d'images' (The image hunter) is a French photo mag which has been going for as long as I can remember.

In the same edition they also tested the Optio WG11 GPS and other 'off road' cameras.
The Optio gets the highest marks as does the Sony DSC TX20;-)
