Hello folks
I have just ordered my K30 with an 18-135 WR.

I had been looking at a Lumix G3 to move up from my GF1, but by chance I came across the K30 which with its water resistance features suits me down to the ground. I think I'll be keeping my GF1 with its 20mm pancake as it's captured some good images for me.

Look forward to posting some images in the near future.

Enjoy the K30. Pentax WR is a great feature which gives you confidence to get out and snap even in the sort of grotty conditions we've got at the moment. And the 18-135 is a very capable, highly flexible lens. Good choice !

Some of my vaguely better stuff

Thanks for the warm welcome folks

Sorry I have not replied sooner, but I've had a bit of "Man Flu"

Must have been bad as the K30 arrived on the 28th and all I did was sign for it and check it over. Did not want to play with it

Feeling better now though.

K30 seems to be a nice solid bit of kit. Bit bigger than my GF1!!!!!!!

I can relate to this - our household has a dose of the man/woman flu - we have had to cancel visiting my girlfriends father yesterday and a meal at my parent's house today in an attempt to avoid spreading it

Enjoy the K30
