Hugo808: Well done Pentax for continuing to think outside the box and release original gear.
I'm a Nikon usr generally but had a go on a Pentax DSLR and was mighty impressed by everything , especially the price which seemed really good value. If I was switching gear I'd leap on the Pentax bandwagon..
I dunno, I prefer the output of the K-30 at say 800 iso than the d5200 looking at stuff like the studio comparison tool here on dpreview.
Any the output was cleaner above base ISO than its Canon and Nikon counterparts. It's a win no matter how you slice it.
Nice to hear someone who is a Nikon or Canon user not completely dump on the Pentax brand. I love my K-30 and thought it was a much better value that similarly priced Canikons at the time and that the results from the sensor were actually better in comparison tests. Throw in the weather sealing, dual control wheels, and other features and it was a no brainer.
