I recently got my K30 and updated firmware to 1.05. It froze on me today. Battery was half full (or half empty :P).SanDisk memory card. Display was on, showing settings, shutter button and on/off switch didn`t respond. Took out battery and it workes fine. I hope it doesn`t happen often or in bad time (timelapse or long exposures).
Now that i said it, it will certainly happen.

Pentax should fix this. K30 is to good of a camera to suffer from these stupid bugs.

I sometimes hangs when using Transcend memory card, when using SanDisk I do not have any problems! I used all the software that have been in circulation for K30, I came to the conclusion that K30 is very sensitive to the quality of the memory card
I tend to agree.
