Summary: This camera kit is a nice beginner kit. The kit 18-55 lens comes with a hood. This kit takes good pictures even with only 16 megapixels. I really like the blue colorr but I liked the great price I found. Look around and maybe you can get a good deal as well.
Summary: Every thing I expected and more. The only thing i didn't see so far is a panorama setting. IT REALLY DOES HAVE A LOT OF OPTIONS. It will take me a long time to learn just the ones I want to use. I REALLY LIKE IT !!!
Summary: Beautiful camera. When im using it I get alot of compliments. Really cool color and easy to use. I bought several other lenses and have take hundreds of puctures. I really enjoy photography again because of this K30 pentax
Summary: This was my first DSLR purchase and I am absolutely loving it. It takes beautiful pictures. I haven't fully tested the weatherproofing of the camera but have taking it on loads of hikes and backpacking trips and it is nice not having to baby it.
