Except for some slight movement of the battery & memory card door (which I would expect for a hinged part meant to be opened and closed) my K-x is rock solid.

The battery door on my K-x can wiggle a bit when closed and has done since day 1. Honestly don't worry about it, my K-x is still going strong after 20,000 shots so I think the build is OK.

It's no pro-quality body, but then again it wasn't designed to be one.
Nevertheless, it's a sturdy build and one that tops any other entry-level model I've seen.
But it is designed to take photographs. So go out there and do that with it!

I have well over 17k on mine, and other than a couple of sensor cleanings, that is the only thing I have done to mine. I would agree that it is a well built camera

The only part on my Kx that has any give to it is the battery door and even that is very slight. So slight that I do not notice it 99% of the time. Beyond that though I am very happy with the build of my Kx. It feels very solid to me.
