Yellowish OVF


Just received my brand new K-30 yesterday, but I compared it with my K-r and I find the OVF has more yellowish tones than the K-r, and thus not exactly accurate with the real scene (the pics are fine though).

I think I won't return it because it's quite minor but would like to know if other people here got the same impression ?

I don't know why it would appear yellow, but you are going from a pentamirror on the K-r to a pentaprism on the K30, so maybe that is the difference you're seeing.

Its probably what Elliott said. Just make sure its not the lens (some lenses can be slightly yellowish/amber coloured)
