I will take some video, but that wasn't the reason I didn't choose the k-5. I don't know, but I was thinking the k-30 had better af and was cheaper.

Am I wrong about the af? Is the video on the k-30 signifacantly better? Is the IQ on the k-5 significantly better?

I thought most of the improvement in the AF was in CDAF? We have Pentax own words saying the reason why the prime M wasn't used in the new K-5II bodies was that the prime M was a compromise to get better video in the K-01 and K-30.

I think the biggest issue with video on the K-30 addresses is the 4 minute limitation of 1080 video on the K-5. The K-30 uses another video format that can link the multiple saved video files into one stream, so you get longer HD video capabilities.

Thank you
