First solid K 30 rumors

  • Radical new design, with some hints of the K-5
  • 16MP sensor (inherited from the K-5)
  • ISO 25600
  • 4 fps burst shooting
  • Full HD video recording
  • 3-inch LCD
  • Weather-sealed
  • Dual control dials, RAW/Fx button, AF.S/C/MF switch (retaining much of the controls of the K-5; not clear if top-plate LCD is present)
  • Dual power system (inherited from the K-r)
  • €799 with DA 18-55mm WR lens
Looks great, but the 4 fps figure is a bit of a concern to me. Opinions?

Neat, a "solid rumor" with a non-working link to another rumor. FF is coming!

I see no just cause for such a limitation whatsoever. If so I don't think Pentax is going to impress anyone by releasing a Kr replacement with less FPS than it's predecessor.

The link was corrected. This was a typo when I initially made the post.

Sounds like a replacement for the Kr - which that would be quite nice. If Pentax integrated the WR body design into all of its DSLR's, that would set them apart from the competition.

I'll agree with others that the K5 replacement should be looking at the new 24.3mp (?) that Sony has produced, as well as expanded video capabilities.

It's between K-r and K-5. Higher than K-r. Close to K-5 with new features.

PentaxOne - PENTAX K30

yep, but leaks seem to be the marketing norm now at all brands, and i am sure most of them originate with the marketing arms of whatever brand is involved. cheap advertising that seems to work
