Upgraded from K-x to K30
Oct 24, 2012

The K-x was a gem with a few flaws. All of them were addressed in the K30. The red focusing dots are back in the viewfinder, the processing of consecutive shots much faster and the view finder info easier to read. The K-x sensor was good at high ISO but the K30 is even better. I now capture images where previously I would not have bothered taking the lens cap off. Considering the price, it is as good as cameras twice the price. I have a Pentax 70mm prime as well as a 300mm prime and the results a superb. The dynamic range is such that you get detail in bright and dark areas. By the way, the light meter and the white balance on the K30 is also more accurate than on the K-x.
