FWIW. Camera Centre UK is an authorised Pentax dealer - I have bought from them in the past with no problems
K-3 II, K-3 and a K-70 from SRS (having now relegated the K-30 /"K-50" to a backup body), & some Sigma and Pentax lenses (and a lot of old 35mm gear!)

remeber you saying that you didnt know it was on last year

I didn't because the stupid medieveal attitude style newspaper (The Journal) we have don't print events until THE DAY after the event has passed!

They even managed to mess up my friends fathers funeral, they printed his death announcement a week after he died (was put into the ground) even through she had placed the advert A MONTH in advance. Only two people turned up, because the rest didn't know he had DIED!

Then she had to go through the embarrasmment and pain of explaining to people who knew he had been unwell, after they had come up asking how's he was
"he died"
"Oh we didn't know'. Because the stupid paper had printed it too late.

Back to the point. I got 400 limit to spend towards a camera

Again my suggestion Louise is see what the verdict on on your K30, you might be able to get it repaired for free or for a reasonable cost. This would cost less than buying a new camera, you will still have a very capable camera and will mean you will have a decent camera to part exchange when you feel the time has come to upgrade.

Hi Louise,

I'm based in Gloucester, be happy to meet around half way if you wished to try the kit out first.

Thanks Alan! Seems I can't even give it away

At this rate it'll be kept as a back up body

We are all saving our pennies for buying a K1!
Louise, having had a K30 (my son now has it) and still having a battered K5, the K5 is worth the upgrade...
