This would seem to be a good opportunity for a real-world test of the K30?

The courier has just delivered mine from SRS this morning, now have to wait to finish work so I can get it home and have a play, haven't had a chance to do more than check that the box says K30 on it so far

Not a silly question at all!

Believe it or not, I've not had chance to play with a 'retail' version yet!

The grip is very nice - very tactile and the AF was particularly swift.

We are waiting for a demo camera, which we will be able to lend out to people to try it for themselves...

Well, I'm home and the box is unpacked, currently the battery is charging. First impressions, it's so tiny compared to my old k10d! Seems to sit very nicely in the hand and the grip's very nicely shaped.

K10D 142mm x 101mm x 70mm
Explains why it feels smaller to me.

Have to wait for the battery to charge, haven't yet ordered the AA adaptor.

Can't wait to read your 1st impression of it, mate.

Hello,

There will be no twin lens kit with 18-55mm and 55-300mm DAL in the UK ?

Looks to be a very favourable review on the other forum.

It is a very favourable review, in fact all I've seen about it indicates it's a very good camera. If i was after a second body I'd definitely buy one. It doesn't look too good for video, however. But a lot of people never use the video on their cameras anyway. I've shot a total of about 10 minutes on my K5.

I am increasingly wondering if a FF model is next....now that I would buy, assuming it was any good, and reasonably small, which I am pretty sure it would be.
