Re: New Pentax K-50 leaked

Looks nice, except I can't understand the back thumb rest which is totally smooth.  I prefer the textured thumb rest on the K-30.

As far as all the negative K-30 design posts, the K-30 design fits perfectly with the Pentax design tradition that's always produced for more unique looking bodies going way back to the rather odd looking MZ-S 35mm film camera, and the more traditional, but still unique (and still awesome) K10D and K20D.

Considering the K-30 is also fully weather sealed I also think it's sporty design totally fits.  And honestly, it's a camera that really needs to be held to appreciate it's great ergonomics.

The notch on the wonderfully deep grip and the extremely tall pop-up flash are all design choices that have a positive impact on the K-30's usability.
