I still miss my SLR I had in the 70's, the Pentax K1000 (35mm lens).

I want to replicate that experience but I want in body stabilization so I can keep the lens small and light, and I want a touchscreen LCD.


Try Pentax K-30, except the touchscreen, it has everything you want See my brief reviewhere .

This is a cam I had looked at, but your review peaks my interest even more. I like the fact it has good ergonomics! That can offset some weight. I also like that is weather proof and is good in low light.

The touchscreen was the deal breaker when I researched this camera because I have a very hard time recomposing accurately since my head injury. With being able to touch what you want in focus, this eliminates that issue, and I take a lot of photos where what I want in focus is off center.

I may just keep on with my G7x M2 and see what crops up in the next couple of years.  But this exercise is very helpful in keeping my eyes open to what comes out.

Thanks so much, this was very helpful.
