Based on the back of the k-30 image, it does not appear to have a articulate LCD screen. To me, it's good move as it may be not designed to be an entry level DLSR model after all. If someone wants an articulated screen, there are plenty to choose from. The last thing I would like to see Pentax going is to take "me-too" direction.

If the k-30 has the pentaprism instead of pentamirror viewfinder, that will be great and a worthwhile upgrade of my backup camera k-7.

The built-in flash is longer/taller than the k-7 or k-5, so that may be a good move as well.

Video spec include 60FPS in 720p... cool.
This camera is what I wanted for my K200D upgrade.... but I could wait and bought a k5 a year early!

Negative marketing value? I can bet that more than 90% of Pentax users even don't know how Pentax AF system is called.
Name SAFOX has negative value mey be in eyes of some persons who sit in forums 24h/day and 7days/week, not for normal people.
True. Or anybody who's just into cameras, there's a lot of us.

Just wondering: How much would it affect the costs to make a WR articulating screen? Are there even SLRs with articulating screens that are weatherproof?

Take a look at nikon cameras with weather sealing AND an articulating screen.. there aren't any, that's the problem, it would be much harder to seal a camera with an articulating screen. Maybe the Kz will have one, though I doubt it considering the K01 lack one and that really needed one.

I love the shape and feel of pentax. The lens to one side looks cool and different and
it balances well. The first SLR i saw like this was the old Olympus E1... loved that too lol

RiceHigh's Pentax Blog -> only the blue one with the 18-55 wr ?
that's the 18-135mm WR. Which would be the ultimate bundle for many consumers. Hope they do put out this kit and price it right.

Seeing that top view of the K-30 and it's grip curving like that in comparison to the k-5.. damn that's awesome. I love the grip on my k-x, and if the K-30's is as substantial and ergonomic as it looks, it'll be just awesome to use for long periods of time.

SAFOX IXi+ autofocus
k-5 is SAFOX IX+
so k30 autofocus should be better than k-5..
that is cool.
