So what do you think of a K50 or K30 as a first DSLR? From looking at the specs, there is a lot to like about these cameras--

Yes, and unlike the cheap plasticy rebels, they're solid enough so that once you start using one, you can keep using it for a good long time instead of immediately feeling the pressure to upgrade, which is about all the basic C and N models are meant to do if you have any of the spirit of a real photographer.

It's true that if you're looking at a multi-year investment in a whole grand system, Pentax's future may be iffy, but if you're going to seriously worry about that kind of issue, you're probably wasting your time buying anything at the rebel level.
