Hello everybody

Hello everyone,

I am currently using a Canon PowerShot SX280 HS user but I have decided to switch to a DSLR to make better landscape pictures. For the last 5 weeks I have been reading everything about aperture, shutter speeds, DoF, ISO, lenses and of course cameras.

I was Initially comparing the Sony A65 and the Nikon D3200 but now I have come across the K30 to which I am heavily leaning. The weather sealing of the K30 is a huge plus point to me as I am frequent hiker (as well as in cold and wet conditions) in the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium. Because I expect to order the K30 soon I have already created an account here. Looking forward to learn from you and discuss many interesting topics on this forum.

Welcome aboard! The weather sealing of the K-30 certainly gives a peace of mind. I'm sure most cameras can stand a little drizzle, but it's always nice to know you're safe, even if surprised by a downpour.

If you decide to buy you should download the pdf version of the manual and start reading.

Good luck on your quest!
