I replaced my K7 with a blue K-30 with 18-135mm and it's definitely an upgrade. Great impression of the camera so far. Focus peaking with the M42 Takumar 55mm is a lot of fun too!

Just got the K 30 in a couple of days ago. Amazon used deal, apparently open box and no use, first picture I took was 0001. Mint condition. So far I love it. Great improvement over K-x, which I really liked.

I got mine a week and a half ago (Tuesday before Turkey Day) from Cord's Camera in Cincinnati.

I'm very impressed, and so are my Canon and Nikon DSLR shooting friends

me too.

I got mine back in August, from a Costco special. it might have been wiser to try elsewhere, specifically for that sweet, sweet 18-135mm WR lens, rather than the 18-55mm DA-L, but the free Optio, case, and sd card sold it to me. Parents got the optio to play with on a trip to Niagara, and are pleased.

Postie arrived yesterday afternoon. I'd been waiting a week. Seriously considered K-5 but $650au had it beaten all the way to the bank.

Battery's charged so now it's playtime,

I bought a black one without kit lense a month ago. It was from Amazon and so far I really like it. I switched from K-x.

I bought the kit with 18-135 and took advantage of the 50 Euro cashback action, here in the Netherlands. Bying price was 929 Euro (without the cashback).
