Re: pentax K-50 what to expect

I have the K-30 which is all the same hardware, K-50 has just different styling. It is quite similar to D7100 in term of size & weight. Interface could use a update, although life is simple with the status screen & control panels. Maybe some things are just not as intuitive as they could be, especially if you come over from a Nikon campus. Mode dial features the classics P, Tv, Av and M with some nice Pentax only extras such as Sv (sensitivity variation) and TAv (Time+Aperture variation).

Viewfinder is excellent, bright and with 100% coverage. Sealing is also a big plus, but consider that it only comes to life when you attach a WR lens to it, otherwise water can enter the camera from the bayonet. Also video is quite decent quality and usable if you are into movies.

You can expect top notch image quality out of the camera, that also depends on the quality of your lenses.
