IDK,, pixel peeping? and maybe 100% coverage optical viewfinder.

Also the results of older full frame glass will "appear" sharper and wont get out-resolved by the higher density smaller sensor. On the other hand even cheep new digital cropped sensor lenses will look stunningly sharp in the center. Also FF offers more control over DOF.

also keep in mind the k-5 series shutter is rated for over 100,000 activations, where as the k-30 the shutter life is never OFFICIALLY given by Ricoh

I have the k-30. and i would recommend the k-5 over it.
For one thing if at some point you would like a vertical grip , there is one for the k-5 and not the k-30.
The k-5 seems to be built a little more robust, made of magnesium alloy and stainless steel, whereas the k-30 has a stainless steel inner frame covered by a plastic shell.
The K-5 also has much better battery life than the k-30
The k-5 also has ISO 80 the k-30 does not.
The k-5 also has a quieter shutter than the k-30, very important IMO
The k-5 has a top LCD for quick viewing of settings. the k-30 does not.
On the down side the K-5 is very very hard to find new. And the k-30 is likewise hard to find new, except on the gray market.
Just some things to consider.
As others have mentioned I would also suggest the k-5II or the k-5IIs both of which can still be found new .
The K-50 can also be found new for under $500
PLEASE PLEASE be careful of amazon sellers based in countries foreign to your own. These are most often gray market cameras and may be refurbished or used and may not have a Pentax warranty. Also it may take many weeks for you to receive your camera and returns may not work well.
B&H and Adorama are the most trustworthy companies out there to deal with.
And KEH for older used equipment.
Crutchfield is also a very good company offering a 90 day return policy and good support. but higher prices.

Why don't kit lenses come with hoods?

my 18-55mm WR also came with a hood. I suspect those that are not receiving hoods with there kits lens may be victims of gray market sales or buying return items sold as new that may have been returned without the hood.

How do you 'calibrate the lens'?
Posted By OldNoob
Replies: 12

Calibrating a kit zoom can be tricky. For example my 18-55mm front focused from 18 to 24mm and back focused from 30 to 55mm and the smaller aperture of the kit zooms can make it more difficult to read the results. I decided to calibrate for the longer angles and rely on manual focus for the wider angles.


Also you might find the suggestions in this thread about better focus helpful.

I also use center weighted spot focusing. i find it gives more consistent in focus images, except in the case of sports.
