Would you buy a K-30 today?

I think the current pricing for the K-30 with WR lens is the best APS-C DSLR deal going right now. When the stock runs low, it will surely increase in value.

For the cost of a budget body you get mid-range features, mid-to-high-end image quality and low-light capability, WR body and a WR zoom.

The downside? Well, only 25 (or so) new OEM lenses, compared to dozens for Canon or Nikon, fewer aftermarket lenses in PK and not much local dealer support.

I've used both B + H and Adorama, and can recommend both highly. Shipping, service and prices, all first-rate. For the small stuff like hoods and such, eBay and a slow ship from China.
