Re: K30 any issues?

I had a long journey arriving at the K30, going through several Nikon models including the D700, Sony SLTs, NEX 5n, Olympus EPL-1, etc. and I have finally arrived at something that is "just right".  After cherry picking my 18-135 WR I am extremely pleased.  What a fantastic lens that one.  And my 12-24 is sharper across that the Sigma 10-20 from my Sony A55.  Very similar in character to the Tokina 12-24 from my Nikon DX days.

  • It has very near D700 high-ISO performance.  RAW files are very maleable.
  • great VF
  • in-body VR
  • AA batteries
  • durable and weather-resistant
  • compact and light
  • good lens selection (I currently have 18-135, 40XS, 12-24, 50-135)
  • inexpensive
  • focus peaking

The only thing I miss is the tilt LCD, but that may be mutually exclusive with durability.

Overall very happy with Pentax!
