Re: Canon = 'SYSTEM' but Pentax k30 = "better camera"

True if you mean better as in more complete. Pentax system is better (as in lighter) on your back on a day's walk.

In the SHORT VIEW , I admit, Pentax k30 is DELICOUS (...)

Also true.

The downside of going with pentax are plentiful too. There are numerous QC issue, K5 has tainted sensor,

Not tainted but stained. Solved. Defective cameras replace. Can you be absolutely sure that there are no defective Canon cameras ever?

KX has nimh battery issue (fixed by firmware),

As you said, fixed.

Kr has some weird issues over at pentax forum,

True, some people complain about weird AF behavior under extreme low lighting conditions. But K-30 as a new AF system so let's wait and see.

then there is the Pentax SDM failure issues.....

In the beginning there were more failures but today failures are uncommon but all motors eventually have problems and people just get them repaired. Mine is still working fine.

Lastly, pentax just raise the price of its lens by 50-70%, and is the result of numerous complains and frustration.

True, although not all lenses suffered such increase in price.

so I like the Pentax K30 CAMERA BY ITSELF...

One of the best (if not the best) for manual focus lenses but not sure if the focus peaking is enough to convince me.

Have fun,
Luis
