Score 10.0/10
Good points:
- lenses of an old SLR can be used on the new K-30 which is a big plus
- the camera offers the functionality and quality I expect from Pentax
- the size and weight of the camera is perfect
- it comes with a very useful manual
Bad points:
- for some feature it is really necessary to read the manual
- Silkypix is not very intuitive and so far I didn't find out how to really use it

Keith, Sunderland Experienced amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Having being a Nikon user since the APS DLSRs were released - I recently changed over to Micro Four Thirds because of the size. Then as I missed my DSLRs - I was reading the Awards for 2012 made by the What Digital Camera which gave the Pentax K30 the best APS DSLR Award for 2012 . Without doubt it is a super camera - the quality of the photographs are amazing - even at 3200 ISO and the kit lens is the best I have used on any DSLR - far superior to the Nikon and Canon versions. I would recommend this camera to any one . I also purchased the 35mm Lens which is excellent
Bad points:
I only have one at present
