This is not a technical comment, but I bought the K-x for a friend for Christmas and played with it a while before wrapping it up. I was so impressed with its compactness, light weight, performance and features, I took the plunge and bought myself a K-7 ! So far, I love the K-7, but could so easily love the K-x also. The K-x scores in that its features are so easy to select and use, and the auto handles everything so very well. It is easy with the K-x to go out and just enjoy taking good pictures, and enjoy the in-camera editing features too.

I have not experienced too much hassle with the LV. However, I want to mention that the auto focus is a little sluggish when shooting using LV. The internal computer is quick enough to "remember" where a good focus spot might have been while it racks through the barrel and whips back once it has determined there is no better focusing option. I like the speed of that.

Metering flaws are mentioned in the manual when shooting against a bright backlight. Possibly also with a background of continuous patterns (i.e. repeating vertical lines.

Video is phenomenal for the price. I've been shooting DV single CCD video for over 5 years! It’s not true hi def, but I'm happy I have clear images on my 42" plasma, finally. I really dig the motion blur achieved by the 24fps shutter.

My question is this:
I've dl the new 4.11 update for DCU, but have found a bug when trying to preview folders containing both .DNG and .JGP files. Any advice? If I move the RAW to its own folder, no more crashing.
I seem to have similar experiencies, but love the manual focus! I too have found the video quite remarkable - not as my Canon HF-10, but not that far behind!
