Beginner DSLR: Pentax K-30 vs Nikon D5200

Hi All,

I am considering to buy either a pentax k30 or a nikon d5200 as my first DSLR. I was hoping I could get some expert opinions on both of these cameras and how do they compare against each other.

I would have avoided to post this question, but I wasn't able to find a good comparison between the two cameras.

Living in Dubai, I probably will spend much of my time learning photography by shooting buildings, architecture and such.

As I live in a region heavily tilted towards Nikon & Canon, I may face some difficulties in buying the pentax lenses at good rates.

But leaving the monetary issues related to the lenses aside, I am just looking to buy the better camera of the two. (I understand that one is not exactly better than the other)

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Your opinions are much appreciated!

P.S.: Do I need to consider the Canon 650D as well? Or D7000?
