Looking at the 78% of the K-30 makes one think the camera is lacking, whereas one could easily argue that it is over-specced for its class.

BTW, good writing style would suggest that it is "it is easy to recommend the Pentax K-30." instead of "it is very hard to not recommend the Pentax K-30."


Agree on both points.

On the first, the K-30 has superior specs to anything approaching its price simply by being weathersealed with a stainless steel chassis, and should be rewarded for same in the scoring. This puts it in a class close to the Nikon D7000 but at a price closer to the D5100.

On the second, I agree the wording should be changed from damning with faint praise to true praise for a job well done.

I'm not a Pentax user yet both these points leap out at me in an otherwise very well written review.
