I guess the points on K-30 are more because the price is less. But amazon deal for K-50 is better so i get ideally it should be the winner in comparision

I was just looking at the same thing. the K50 is on amazon right now for $550, $620 with 18-55mm kit lens; the K-30 is $450 and $560 with same kit lens. I'm almost regretting having just bought the K-30 mainly due to having shot in an auditorium and seeing a lot of grain, which K-50 might've been able to prevent.
