Pentax K-30 Review | Digital Camera Resource Page

"The Pentax K-30 is a very capable digital SLR that arguably offers more bang for the buck -- including a weather-sealed body -- than any other camera in its price range..... Overall, it's pretty hard not to like the Pentax K-30.."

This is annoying though, and I have seen the same comment on other reviews

The Pentax K-30 is a competent performer in most areas. The only real slow spot is live view focusing, though the K-30 is actually a bit faster than most of its competition.
So, why mention it as a negative then? I have seen a comparitive review of the K30 vs other sub-700 DSLRs, and again the K30's live view AF speed was mentioned. It was not mentioned for any of the other cameras!

lol you are right. They just feel they must list some negatives as well to appear impartial.

And of course, Pentax must have negatives, its no Nikon, after all![/sarcasm]

Edit: Also.. slow AF in live view? On a DSLR? How is that even worth mentioning, at all. It has contrast detect AF, of course it won't be as fast, but who will use CDAF when they need fast focus if they have an OVF and PDAF? And it has focus peaking! So you can focus very quickly manually!

Is this 3fps with RAW correct? First time I've seen that and it's not mentioned in the manual.
