have liked my LX; think i'll like my K5

i waited for ever for an LX digital back (how hard could it be) or a full frame Pentax digital. just gave up and bought a K5 two weeks ago. this forum helped me decide to do so. thanks.
i already miss the LX's quick release strap system.
i'm still learning the K5's and digital's newances before getting serious. K5 seems to be of similar build quality and feel of LX.
