Just want to inform you guys that I ordered a new K-50 with 18-135mm lens + 1 extra battery yesterday. The price difference between the K-30 and the K-50 was minimal (less than 115$), so I got "the latest one", not because it will be better, but it will be newer and have slightly different technology (2 autofocus-systems).

Thank you again for all advise given!

Best regards,
Walter

I promised a picture, once I got the camera into my hands. Was out yesterday evening until the sun went down to test-shoot the K-50. Here is what I brought home:





Thank you for your help in choosing this camera. i am sure I will appreciate it in time to come, when I have learned all the different technical settings. This was just before the sun went below the horizon, hence the warm colors on the trees.

Thank you Gary. I find the K-50 quite responsive and really appreciate the big buffer for sequential shooting. My good old and trusted Nikon D300s quits long before the K-50 when it comes to reading and writing exposures to the memory card in continuous shooting.
I find the screen difficult to see in strong sunlight, but the viewfinder is excellent.



Best wishes,
Walter

Edit: Looks a bit on the RED side here ...strange. Not the clouds (they look all right to me), but the ship?

You may find one of those inexpensive folding LCD hoods helpful in this regard. I find them quite useful. Enjoy the camera.
