A good introductory video for beginners. Glad Pentax is finally deciding to educate people. Primes were emphasised, which is interesting.

I'll note that the 35mm prime is included in both the normal and the wide angle categories. Right after the narrator said that wide angle is less than 35mm. Well, that's my nit-pick for the day!

Nice video. How much for all that lot to go with the K30 in use?

Interesting the emphasis on primes and the star zooms. No mention of the crop factor.

Anyone spot that the DA*300mm has a field of view of 90 degrees. It's at 4m 37secs. A good idea to do the video but surely someone should have spotted that.

It would do nothing but confuse the beginners this is obviously targeting. But your point is taken, since they define normal as starting with the 35mm, instead of at 28mm.

Of course here is no Pentax 28mm lens. I guess they wouldn't want to draw attention to this glaring omission.
