This machine is solidly built. It feels even more robust than the K-5. These dials and buttons feel solid, but with a lovely smooth motion. Like something well engineered with fine tolerances. It's smaller than I thought. It really is not much bigger than the K-5. I think I'll need to get a battery grip for it, as I did for the K-5. The shutter sounds glorious. In the K-5 it's noisier and more of a jarring sound. This just sounds smooth and controlled. Man oh man, this thing focusses fast. The viewfinder is sublime. Large, very clear, super easy to read the displays. Under the Mode Dial, there's this neat little "lock-unlock" slide. Turns out, you can slide that to one side and it removes the need to push the centre button to rotate the Mode Dial. The Mode Dial still has a nice smooth click function from one setting to the next, but you need not depress the centre button when the 'lock' is unlocked. As some of you may be aware, I won this camera in the raffle. A huge thank you to Adam!

I really enjoy my K-5. It is my first digital SLR and I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to make the change to digital with this camera.

The SFXn is the upgrade to the SFX. Differences include a back-lit top display and faster shutter speed than the SFX. The camera is quite robust and trouble free. A nice touch is the multi-bracketing and the ability, with remote shuuter release, to lock the mirror in the up position thereby making possible very long exposures. (limited only by battery life)
