K-30 II

It has been a year, since K-30 has been announced. I all the time desired to own a one. Its preety affordale where I live nowadays (600 Euros with 18-55 WR).

As a possible customer (while i was checking it in my hands ) I love its

  • Class leading OVF
  • Razor Sharp screen
  • Feels great with its grip and built quality
  • Weather sealed.
  • Great & Affordable  Pentax lens range
  • Satisfactory Image quality
  • positive user reviews.

But i can´t stop asking ,

  • Why there is no stereo voice recording, or at least mic-in.
  • Why does not it have a HDM (mini, micor ...you name it)
  • Whould not it be amazing to have a wi-fi that it could be connected/commanded from a tablet / computer/ mp3 player / phone.

When would we see a pentax K-30 which has better videographic features and with more controbility?

Please share your opinions.



ps: I am glad, to not saw such upgrades (as canon did) 650D - 700D. An upgrade comes less than in a year and God knows what are the improovements or does those improvements makes sense !
