K-5 with 50-200

This is just the way of photography. It does not matter how large the resolution of your image is... the dynamic range of pictures have not changed dramatically, but sharpness, bokeh, contrast, etc. are just as important as they were in 1901.

Rhetorical slush,try the K5 and you like others will start to see things are changing.

Of course, K5 is better than Kx, sensor is better than Kx, its weather sealed, faster AF, and most importantly has hardware buttons for commonly used functions. So why do I have Kx and not K5? Because I still have a K10D, which is weather sealed etc., and satisfies that need for the time being. The Kx is for its high ISO performance, video, liveview etc. I also really appreciate the compact size and that it is powered by AA batteries. Makes a great travel camera, paired with some limited and unlimited primes.

I've tried it, nothing remarkably different from my K20d at ISO 100, which is still where you always want to be if possible. However the lens *always* makes a difference at ISO 100.

I'm *not* saying you need an FA ltd. to take a good photo, but investing in glass is generally a better idea then blowing your budget on a camera that won't last 5 years.

As the thread is about the K-x and FA ltd, then there is little in a comparison to it with the K-5. So value for money, the K-x or K-r is top notch.
