K-30 looks sexy

just saw the K30 preview and I like it's ergonomics a lot just by looking at it. for me, this should had been how the K-01 looked and felt like. don't mind loosing the top portion flash and viewfinder though for the K30. the build of the K30 what interests me. too bad that I'll be missing the top LCD panel. would take awhile to get used to. faster and accurate AF and focus peaking would make this a better deal over the K-5.

Looks can of course be deceiving - but I too like how it looks. If nothing else it will be easy to detect from a distance when checking the crowd: hmm Nikon or Canon, another one, WHOA a K-30!

I have to agree, this is one good looking dslr! I especially like the metallic looking blue in the photos I have seen.

The specs have me lusting for one, but I am trying to wait for the K-5 replacement before I go out and order one of these!

I need to replace my K-x (looks like I need to put 'er down) and I'm hoping to see what they have as the K-5 replacement by the time next income tax season rolls around. Depending upon how the next new camera looks like (please oh please let it be in that blue color the 30 has...) I might even really bite the bullet and grab both. K-3 (or whatever it'll be named) for serious work, and the K-30 for play.

I agree, she looks beautiful, especially in her blue dress.

Especially with beads of moisture rolling off her...

I'm not keen on the flash when its up... Look a little breakable...

Other than that, like the look a lot... And the AF upgrade is welcome

It looks ok, the K5 is a lot better though.
They are getting dangerously close to the Japanese cartoon robot theme now...

I'm becoming convinced more and more that this is the D3200 competition. I wouldnt be suprised if there were 2 above this one eventually.

Not bad at all

I agree that this camera is pretty impressive. It really looks great and the three colours are great as well. I wouldn't mind the blue one over my shoulder.

I can see people spotting it and saying: "A D3200 - I didn't know Nikon made them in blue!"
