Just got a K-30

I already had a K-01 that I really like, but I have some outdoor events I need to be able to photograph in August so wanted something that had an EVF or OVF.

I also have a couple of Samsung NX cameras and really like those for lightweight operations, but I needed something which would also handle decent powered flash kit and as I've already got a Sigma EF 530 ST that works well on my K-01 it seemed daft to invest in the NX range.

I was thinking about "making do" with my K-01 only and then SRS posted an X-Demo K-30 on ebay for £259. It didn't take too much thinking about especially as I had just been out for a beer or three (oops!)

Anyway - got it yesterday and taken a few shots in the garden just to make sure everything is OK. Seems to be fine to me

With Tamron 70-300mm (Still one of my favourite lenses)
