Pentax K-5

The K-5 is now around the same price as the K-30, about $30 more counting the $50 Pentax rebate on the K-30. You didn't say anything about wanting to do HD movies, so the K-5 would still be my pick over the K-30 for about the same money for stills.

I would go with the 18-135mm with the K-5. I went with the Tamron 18-250mm over the kit lenses when I bought the K-10 and I would do the same today, but with the 18-135mm. The DC motor will be very welcome, and when you need WR, you aren't going to want to swap lenses.

Thank you
Russell
