Another K-30 Review: DigitalCameraInfo

Pentax K-30 Digital Camera Review -

Their listed positives are pretty solid:
  • "Weather-resistance seals keep moisture and dust out"
  • "Lighter and less expensive than roughly equivalent Pentax K-5"
  • "Grip is large and accommodating, offering great control"

Their listed negative is half right.......

"Menu still needs work and unfortunate that the base-level kit doesn’t include a weather-resistant lens." The idea that the Pentax menu needs work, in comparison to the others that I have seen, is crazy. Selling it with a Non-WR lens on the other hand is also crazy IMHO.

They seem to have missed the Pentaprism feature, the 100% viewfinder, the things that only the K-30 offers at the Mid-level price point for dSLRs, and one or two other things.
