I've had a currys gift voucher burning a hole in my pocket so took advantage of the quidco 10% off dslr weekend and the pentax cash back and got currys to price match jessops price of 412.97 so if my maths is correct it has cost me just 321.97 for k-30 and WR kit lens.

I also took out the currys whatever happens insurance for the princely sum of 4.50 a month

Can't wait to give it a whirl and upgrade the firmware....

The K-30 is ridiculously good value for money as it is. The fact that it isn't steamrollering the competition only goes to show just how far Pentax still have to go in terms of brand awareness.

Will you be taking it out on shoots along with the K-5 as a second body?

Yes that's the plan, the gx20 is showing its age now, the k-30 is just a stop gap until I hope the mkiis drops down in price in new year

Just processed my first pics from the K-30 in Lightroom and I'm very impressed with it. You're going to have a lot of fun!
