Hi all, I'm a student teacher in Australia, I bought a Panasonic FZ200 superzoom earlier this year to take better pics of outdoor adventures. I've found it a lot of fun, and would like something that handles low light better - the K30 with a fast lens has come up as a pretty good option in this regard as weather proofing is also very appealing, and I'm currently wondering whether I'd rather spend money on it or something else.

Welcome to the forum David, have a look at the reviews on the K-5 II & K-5 II.s, both well worth their price.

Welcome to the forum, I don't know that you'll get many votes of support here for the "something else" element of that statement.

Well, the "something else" over a Pentax camera body would be Pentax lenses, wouldn't it? I agree that without having a body first that'd not make a lot of sense.

OP, welcome. The K-30 is a great camera, just look around here on all the praises it gets for both build quality, ergonomics, functionality (In-body SR so rocks!, and WR is really all that!) and (importantly) image quality.
