NO motion sensor on K-30

I have never noticed this happen either. I always have to press a button to get mine to wake up. Are you sure you didn't accidentally press a button when you picked the camera up, i_trax? If this is a feature, it would be kind of cool, although it seems like your camera would be on all the time if you are out walking with it and it's moving around as you walk.
well, is the Tamron 46A old lens with Adaptall2 P/KA adapter "doing" waking up??
it does that on K-5 as well, bummer.......apologise for my burst of enthusiasm.
It must be a loose contact on the adapter causing camera to wake up, although that adaptor works fine and I have another Adaptall2 P/KA which
would not wake camera up, very odd indeed.
