Re: A choice between two Pentax bundles. (I'm a beginner)

i would not get those kits.  For different reasons Than others mentioned.

1- seller is electronics boutique.   theynare not authorized pentax sellers, afaik.  So no pentax warranty?  This is huge in my opinion!!

2- i would get the $619 k30 with 18-55 lens.  Then I would keep the lens to start And see how it works for you. Probably within a month you will know if you want to keep it.  If not, you can probably sell it for $50-75.

3- after some experience using the camera, get the lens you truly need, not one that sounds good on paper only.

There are so many choices.

i would also spend the extra $ on a sturdy tripod.
