A nice review.
Quite informative.
What more to add to the K-m other than video mode, slightly different sensor and some extra fps?
Looks like the entry-level market's the focus nowadays.
Would love to see a K20D successor come through too...

Gee, I think that might be a bit biased towards the Nikon D3000.

While balance and handling, overall, were nice on the K-x not too heavy, not too light the prototype I tested did have one odd quirk: it occasionally rattled when I carried it. This could be because it was just an early "beta" unit or because the AA batteries don't fully lock inside. (The camera still rattled when I took the batteries out but not as severely.) It was hard to tell without taking the camera apart which is something I, obviously, didn't want to do. Again, a minor quibble but I thought it was worth mentioning.
SR sensor?
