Hi

I had two Pentax SLRs, the second being a Super Program (I think I took more pictures with it than with any other camera), back in the film era, but I ended up with a Canon Rebel as my introduction to digital photography. I'm not sure what my next digital cameras will be, which is why I'm here now. I'd be a lot more interested in a K-50 if the LCD tilted. I'd be a lot more interested in a Q if they could figure out some way of fitting in an evf.

If you still have your old Pentax lenses, both the K-30 and K-50 are great deals right now. Plus they're weather-sealed.

Yeah, it is ironic that those are weather-resistant, considering the fact that my first Pentax, an ME, was never the same after a trip to Niagra Falls. I still do have my Super Program, and the 50mm f/1.7 lens that came with it, but I've been thinking in terms of a tilting LCD (which would enable me to be a little less conspicuous when taking street pictures,etc). I don't have to do anything right now, so maybe I will wait another model or two.

You could get the 645Z. ^_^

Welcome, choice of technique is very large, and it all depends on your budget and on your needs.
But in any case. You will always find here the answers to many questions related to the Pentax and lenses

One option with the tilted LCD that has surprising good image quality especially for street shooting, is the Pentax MX-1.

Oh, and welcome!

The tilting LCD is about the only thing Pentax is lacking if you must have one. Myself, I don't like working from the LCD when making a movie. Maybe that is why I don't make many movies.

I'm mixed about the tilting LCD. I can see its value for sure, but I've also banged my K5 around a bit, and a couple of falls almost certainly would have snapped off a folding LCD. I'm happy to see Pentax focus on ruggedness, since I'm outdoors a lot.

Welcome to PF. I wish Pentax had a tilt screen on a camera besides the 645Z. Just got a camera with that feature and I love it.
