If the articulating screen I saw from another post is real for the K30 that would imply to me that the video ability will also be auto focus. this would truly break Pentax back into the market that was started with the Nikon D90. Even with all the buzz I hear about K3 and or another K? FF in the fall, something like the K30 would pass my K-7 as the second body. Interesting to see what the final release looks like

was telling the guy that the a57 is better than a37...i did not buy the sony a57/a37 because it is not waterproof....would have bought the a77 but the jpeg's have a artefacting in them.... so considering the k30, but only if the videoformat is avchd, and it has a flip out screen!!! my fingers are crossed

There wasn't a K20. It was a K20d which was replaced by the K-7 which was replaced by the K-5. The K200d was never really replaced. Pentax just started up the K-m, K-x and K-r line and phased out the K200d.

Well, if the K-30 doesn't come with a WR lens off the bat, you won't don't much playing in the rain with either one...at least going by the leaked French photo and the Amazon UK links, all I've seen, is the camera bundle with the 18-55 DA-L.

I wonder if it will be able to use the higher speeds of UHS-1 cards, something the K5 can't do. It would sure make things go faster if it could clear its buffer faster. Also, I have to wonder if it will have the same bit depth as the K5.

This argument is an old one and only partially true. You can use a weather sealed camera in the rain with an unsealed lens much more safely than if both are unsealed and in point of fact it is fairly easy to protect your lens in the rain with a plastic bag with a hole cut in it.

Whatever the case, Pentax has a fairly reasonably priced line of sealed zooms that you can pick up used on the forums periodically for 120 to 130. I would imagine as well, that it would be offered in a bundle with the 18-55 and 50-200 WR lenses (although figure a thousand as the price for that) and maybe even with the 18-135 WR (this bundle would make the most sense IMO).

It looks like a DA 18-55mm WR to me and it says it is bundled with such and has it mounted in the pic.
