Go to or another musicians site and check out the Zoom digital recorders.

Not only has the price come down on their basic model, but it's an intense musician designed for serious, live music recording.

This isn't actually an external microphone, but a complete external recorder.

It'll be a bit more difficult to use than an external mic since you have to splice/sync in the new audio in post.

HOWEVER it's the only option for good audio for the K-x/K-r, and in addition, likely provides better quality and more flexibility than most external mic solutions for the K-5/K-7.
