These are the only differences I can spot: ISO up to 51,200, fractionally smaller (1mm) on all sides, 10% lighter. That is besides the styling, it looks better to me as I always found the K-30 a bit of a mish-mash visually. Pentax logo on front is finally straight

Less angular than the K-30, magnesium body...Raised ISO over the K-30 at 51,200?

Interesting to see they've reverted the styling, specs don't look too ground breaking, but hopefully this is the start of a few more releases. In the mean time, think I've found me a signature...
Pentax pour des images riches en détails!

I suppose this K-50 is not to be confused with a lens of the same name

A Google search for K-50 only brought up lenses.

Yep, looks like the K-30's replacement.

So slightly updated focussing, WR kit lens, and a revised body.
K5iis and a couple of lenses.

very serious video specs!

Fired many shots. Didn't kill anything.
