Wonder how much this'll go for...

While certainly not in any way a bad spec'ed camera, there doesn't seem to be too many changes from the K-30, which makes me wonder what they can sell this for.

The K-30 can be had pretty cheap these days (and R&D etc is probably payed off), so if Pentax haven't changed things too much and don't have a too big R&D expense to cover, I could see this going really cheaply.

Weather sealing costs, but swivel screen & new expensive sensor as well as (probably) new shutter design etc is missing, so if they saved money here and sell this BELOW Canikon's offerings, this could sell really well, don't you think?

Sure we might complain of old sensor, no swivel etc but for the parent buying a camera for his kids might be swayed towards a cheapish DSL instead of the almost as expensive compact they were gonna buy....
