Good- price performance.

Bad - build quality. My first copy was with inaccurate viewfinder. The focus in the viewfinder was not where it is actually so if you shoot relying on your eyes - huge backfocus. The second one has problems with the sealings, the lcd screen is not mounted properly and it sucks dust inside especially with WR lenses. The local service told me that it came from the SD card slot :D, that was enough to convince me never to buy pentax again! I'm still using the K30 but my next camera will be sony or nikon!

You do know the viewfinder focus is adjustable?

The weather sealing on even somewhat dearer Nikon and Sony cameras will be worse than Pentax, you have go to way up the price range to better the K-30.
