Re: K30 fried after using in rain

Glad you got some good service from Johnsons', I found them very helpful and fast when my K5 developed a problem (sticky mirror) My K30 has now passed to my son (who likes taking it for long walks in the rain) and it has suffered no ill effects, I think you got one with a duff seal arounds the rear LCD, it was a documented early problem with the K30. I do miss focus peaking on the K5 vs the K30, it is a very useful feature. I personally would stick with the K30 unless you need the faster FPS and bigger buffer of the K5II/IIs
Anyway, glad you are back taking pictures
