Introduction

The Pentax K-30 is the latest in a long line of Pentax DSLRs to feature weather-proofing, allowing users to take the K-30 into conditions other sub-$1000 DSLRs simply won't survive. The K-30 sports the excellent handling we've come to expect from Pentax cameras, a 16-megapixel APS-C image sensor, and an autofocus system that is designed to improve upon the questionable system used in the Pentax K-5. The K-30 is available now in black blue, and white colors for an MSRP of $899.95 with a standard 18-55mm kit lens.
