K5 vs K30?

Thanks for all the help guys. I had the same question and have just gone for a k5. The top lcd and magnesium body swung it for me. Plus the k5 is available now and should be pretty sorted out, rather than waiting for k30 which might have teething issues (thinking sensor stain issues).

Ordered from SRS based on forum feedback, so hoping it all works out. Will post my thoughts when it arrives.

Thanks for the comments guys...

Im still amazed at the results you can get with even the entry level camera! I think its pretty difficult to take bad pics of some of these places though!

Sugar Loaf is from Brazil, as is the Rocinha Favela,
Copacabana (there are 2, the other is in Rio), Uyuni, and Isla Del Sol are from Bolivia
Arequipa and Colca are from Peru

Tamron 28-75 focussing issue

I have been using my K100Ds and the Tamron 28-75 f2.8 lens, but sometimes on AF it doesnt focus correctly. It feels like it is trying to focus further than infinity as dictated by the lens. If you switch to MF the focus ring is as far round as it will go.
Not sure if this is a camera or lens issue but I didnt notice it with the kit lens before.

Any ideas or advice for a quick fix as I am travelling in S America away from camera shops for the next few months.

Many Thx in advance,

I have a K100ds, and the kit lens, and am loving the pictures it takes.
I go travelling in a couple of months and will be ttaking the camera and a couple of lenses.

What would you recommend?
Was thinking at the moment a 40mm DA f2.8 Limited and a 18-250 Pentax DA?
40mm for indoor and basically when I can use it etc, and then the 18-250 when I need more flexibility.

Any thoughts?

Sorry am quite new to this.
I presume as a fast lens this would be suitable as an indoor lens?

I am very tempted, to couple with a slower zoom for outdoor stuff.
