Welcome aboard, looking forward to seeing you putting that new K30 through it's paces in your stunning scenery that you have there.

Thank you for the warm welcome. My enthusiasm to go out and take the first pics was thwarted by the weather; its raining nonstop since a week, and the camera might be more weather resistant than myself.

Willkommen!
Just a reminder - your K30 will not be weather resistant with the 55/1.8 lens. You also need a WR lens, which your kit lens may be.

Yes indeed I have the 18-50 WR as a kit- lens. ( plus a Tamron 70-300 macro) The SMC 55 1.8 was an opportunity, which I felt I could not let pass.

Here's how we do the whole WR thing here.
