If I don't have a K-5, a K-30 would be high on my list. Same sensor, same WR, same viewfinder as K-5. I have relatively large hands, so I like the battery grip option which is not available for K-30. I did have a K-x  before; no problem handling it. K-30 has focus peaking that is lacking on K-5. It is very useful for manual lenses. If IQ is important to you, there are not a lot of difference between K-5 and K-30.

I would if anyone cares to answer me, like to know; how good is Pentax K30 actually. I have left the FF side, ended up in MFT and quite happy about it, but am missing a DSLR too. And a K30 seems to be a good option, pricewise, lightness and size. So how good is it. My kind of photograpy is mainly people, and street photography.
