I just got my hands on a new Pentax K-30 body and slightly used 18-135mm lens. It's the first time I use a Pentax camera. I like it but find that the optical viewfinder is dark and somewhat grainy. Is that normal?

I am a very amateur photographer. Knows nothing about cameras and settings. But I want to learn and move up. I am planning to buy a DSLR camera. I am thinking about going with either a Pentax k30, or Canon eos 650d or a Nikon 3200. Which one do you suggest? Kindly reply. Thank you

I'm looking for a basic camera bag to carry a smallish DSLR (Pentax K30) with a lens on it, plus one spare lens, for walking and mild hiking away from the car.  I'm not looking for an armored behemoth to store everything in the world, just something to carry the camera and the lens so I can have my hands free when I'm not shooting.  It needs to have a long strap so I can carry cross body with the bag down low on my hip rather than at my waist, and be fairly well padded to protect my stuff in...

Well I'm looking at the K30 and I live in Turkey and found two sites. Links here. K30 with 1 18-135 Wr lens for 2.699 Liras Or K30 With 1 18-135mm DAL and 1 50-200mm DAL Lens For 2.199 Liras Which should I get? I'm tight on budget but I kinda want a Wr lens with a Wr body. Can I buy the Wr lens later on? if so where can I buy it? or should I go for the two kit lens for now? The reason why I'm on a budget is I'm going to Spain with my school  and won't have enough time to raise more money so...

Hi everybody (that owns this lens)... I am wondering if my lens needs repair or service. I havent used the FA* 300mm f4.5 lens in a while, but used it on a K-30 last weekend. And it was annoyingly "jittery". I mean the camera would "change its mind" on where to lock focus very often (fractions of seconds). Sometimes it would not settle at all. This was very small increments - not hunting between close and infinity focus lock. It was so bad that I missed quite a few shots. More...

I have had a Nikon 1 V1 for a while and have achieve great results in photography and video. But due to the small number and high prices of lenses, I'd like to upgrade. The Pentax K-30 seems great. It has everything I need and seems to produce great results. Is it a wise option to upgrade? Could the K-30 produce images comparable to these (http://www.flickr.com/photos/97648886@N02/sets/72157634414789821/ all images on here were taken by me on my V1)? Thanks in advance! -Luke

Looking for an entry level mount to track stars, and avoid star trails. Using a Pentax k30 with a range of lenses, nothing overly big or heavy for now though.
