Wow! That's in impulse buying territory.

Wow. I had a quick go with a K-S1 before I bought my K3 and it's a nice camera.

Honestly, it's a no brainer.

Over say the K-50 you lose two control dials and weather sealing but you gain a 20MP sensor with no AA filter.

I have one and I tend to use it over the K-30 now. It's small by not having a decent grip, but the guts are a normal Pentax camera.

I can't think of ANYTHING out there for the price that comes close.

It got a lot of negative press due to Pentax's insistence on having something new on every camera, and in this case it was the embarrassing attempt to attract young buyers by putting lights on the grip. In practise it's a non issue and it's only the pitiful buffer size that keeps me wanting something more.

Well that on top of the on-going Pentax avoidance of Video features like real mechanical stabilisation during video recording etc, but that's common to all new Pentaxs unfortunately...

Bottom line: Do it.

Now back to 310, but number one in sales in DSLRs (no surprise there).
