Hello, I need you suggestion for my next purchase. I have the opportunity to get, for about the same price (660€) a pentax K30 with the following options: K30 + DA 18-135 WR + 4 Yr Warranty K30 + DA 18-55 WR + DA 55-300 WR + 2 Yr Warranty Both options have their strenght and weakness: Option 1 is more a walk aroud setup plus give me a better warranty cover Option 2 give me more reach at the cost of an higher frequency lens swap and less warranty cover Initially I was leaning toward the...

I currently own the K10D and am looking with envy at the K-30 or K-50 models for their larger pixel count and much improved high iso performance, amongst other things. However I did wonder if the improved high iso was at the expense of base iso? I'd appreciate some feedback from users who have upgraded from the K10D. Besides being a bit bigger are the raw files just as clean at base iso? Are they just as maleable in post work?
So I have potentially narrowed down my choices here after some help over the past day.

They both sell used for about the same, The k30 is going for $425 new on Amazon, while the K50 is $450 new everywhere but with a memory card for free. Calling the price a wash, is there much different between the two? DPR doesn't do much good as I can't find an individual review to...

And I also found out that Pentax, with, K-30 outperforms over other competitors in its price range. So (I thought) I had to chose between Pentax K-30 and D5200 (that was actually my first choice). When asking to some more competent friends, though, turns out that there is...

Hi all, I'm considering my first dSLR and coming from a combination of a Nokia Lumia 920 phone (crazy good pics considering it's a phone) and an old Panasonic Lumix Z28 superzoom. *LOVE* the telephoto reach of the Z28, but I've never been entirely happy with the color it captures and it's not quite as versatile as I'd like. My primary uses for a new camera are: Landscape & Nature - lots of outdoor shots, water, clouds, etc. and hiking in the mountains Wildlife - this was the main reason I...
