It's a pro-level camera at a non-pro price, and the only one at its price that is fully weather sealed. The kit lens offered is weather resistant as well. The body and lens is widely available for under $1000; the price has dropped because it is being replaced with the new K-5.
Hello everyone, I am looking to purchase my first DSLR camera and any help/advice would be much appreciated. I do a lot of hunting and fishing and I'm looking for a camera that can take quick pictures (for ex. getting a fish jumping out of the water) and one that can zoom very far...I know I may have to buy a seperate lens for that. I am just tired of my little cameras taking for ever to get a shot and its to late to snap once something already happened. I would like one mainly to get shots of wildlife such as fish, deer, and waterfowl. Also one that has clear video on it because I like to film while offshore fishing and I make videos out of the trips I take...I really know nothing about these cameras but i dont mind spending up to $1000 on something that will finally be useful for me...Thanks in advance for any the help!
