do the focus points display in Live view?
In LiveView, you can either use Phase detect AF (nothing much to add here) or Contrast detect AF. In contrast detect, as with K-7, there is face detect AF (if you activate it) or not. If CD-AF (normal, not face detect) you can move the focus point wherever you want on the screen, you're not limited to predefine focus points.

4.7 fps and 5 RAW are rather strange....
D5000 has 4 fps and 11 RAW or 100 JPEG.
I corrected you on the dpreview (where you go as yana36, btw) also with this:

The D5000 buffer is according to the dpreview's own test:

"4 frames per second continuous shooting (buffer: 7 RAW, 25 JPEG fine, 100 JPEG Normal)". Fine equals more or less with our 3 stars jpegs, normal means like 2 stars so the quality is too poor to use for me at least.

So: D5000 has 7 RAW, 25 jpg vs. K-x's 5 RAW, 17 jpg.

I'm from Massachusetts, and how did I miss the Pentax event. If you don't mind me asking, where was the event held and how do you find out about other upcoming Pentax events in the area? As an avid Pentax user for many, many years, I would love the opportunity to attend at least one Pentax events. Thanks.

Pretty sure that was an invitation-only event. Too bad Pentax won't be at the PDN show in NYC in October, they could have shown off the K-x.
