Two questions for k-30 users: 1) How is Depth of field control (button) implemented and is it possible to assign DOF and AF to different buttons? 2) Does the mirror flip when pressing DOF button while using a K or M series lens?

I'm quite attracted to the K30. What would be a good quality zoom f2.8 ( up until 50-70 mm) for it ? Thank you

Am I wrong or does the k-01, k-500, k-30, k-50, k-5, k-511 and k-511s all share the same sensor? If so, not sure if it's good or bad, but they sure can buy them in bulk, maybe then even at a savings.

i was hoping ta get the K 50 but that's a no no due to price. so wat camera the k30 or k500? currently the k30 is £50 cheaper.  majority use will be motor sport as i have a micro 4/3 system to deal with the smaller focal lengths

hi there.  just just bought a k-30 kit with 18-55 wr.  I never had a dslr before (was using gxr A12) and have some questions I have heard that Pentax lens has a different characteristic - more tend to Europe lens than Nikon/Canon ones.  is that true? which lens would you suggest, zoom / prime ones?  I like landscape but also occasionally some portraits (that's why I had both gxr 28/50 mms) the 18-55 wr performance was okay but I find my A12 28/50 mm produce better images.  of course I can't...

is the closest to this? Im gonna hope to get a K30 pretty cos i think pound for pound it's a good spec camera. anyway I have always dreamed about owning a canon Dslr with that lens but i think the K30 is a good deal. what the closest spec lens to that canon? ill be using mainly for formula one and odd bit of long distance stuff.  I will be also getting this?

I have my camera set to AV and front edial to exp comp and rear to shutter speed.  When I use the front edial for exposure compensation the indicator in the view finder does not move from the center but I can see the adjustment on the lcd screen.  Is this normal and if so is there a way of setting up the camera so that I can see the adjustment in the view finder in AV mode?

I currently have a oly M4/3 but would like something a bit bigger to handle. been looking at K30 and couple from the Sony,nikon and canon range but as having a previous Pentax Dslr i thought give them a try again. i do have a couple of lenses for this so this is is my favour. would the K30 be good for motor sport? ill be getting a 4-500mm lens later. should i get the K30 for motor sport? weather sealed is also a bonus.
