All of the following is subjective ,, but one of the things i didn't like about Canon and Nikon was the rounded shoulders of the cameras, they looked feminine weak shouldered smoothly things, unlike the k-5-k-3 that still retained a very masculine appearance. The k-30 to me looks a bit more masculine than the k-50 though all of that is subjective to each persons tastes and views and not definitive... but i still don't like slumpy shouldered camera designs.

I liked the looks, size, and shape of my K-x better. But I like the features, usability, viewfinder, and absolutely everything else about the K-30 enough that the size and shape are non-issues.

I do HATE the flash overhang though. Gets caught on my camera bag every. stinking. time.

true the "Flash grip" is a bit much

Welcome to the Pentax family. Yes the K30/50 are great cameras in their own right.
