First Pentax User Group Outing with the new K-30

We had our usual Pentax monthly photo outing yesterday at the new Gardens By The Bay and we had quite a few Pentax K-30s showing up. Pentax Singapore users are a fun group even when it's very early in the morning. Photos courtesy of Frank... taken with the K-30 of course.





Photos from the outing here. After some informal testing, the K-30 definitely trumps the K-5 in the all important area of AF speed and accuracy imo. Focus peaking and AF tracking is pretty cool. Pretty clear the almost two year gap between the cameras has definitely shown the improvements in technology. Plus the body colors are great, nicer than the Kx and Kr imo. We're pretty fortunate we can order our Pentax gear from Pentax Web Store at pretty good prices. (Looks at K-30 with great interest ... don't want to look at my K-5 anymore )

You all are a cute bunch. Those flower things they're way cool, like something Tim Burton would have dreamed up. But where are the close up pics of the K-30's? I liked the rest but I really wanted to see was some closeups of you folks with those pretty new cameras. :P

K-30 with the DA 12-24mm f/4. An awesome combo.

Wow that's a big outting, not even half of that many attended the Minneapolis K-30 tour... Wish I lived in an area where Pentax meetings are set up monthly and that many attended.

Actually this was one of the smaller outings to us. Normally we have far more people turned up than this one

Nevertheless, we had a lot fun shooting as usual
