[langtitle=hi]Pentax K-x Build quality[/langtitle]

Hello people,

Most reviews report good build quality of Pentax K-x. I ordered a white K-x, and it had creak on the battery compartment / right hand grip. I have returned it already. Has anybody else noticed creaking on their Pentax K-x.

The battery door does move around a bit, and the lens release button feels a bit loose, but despite that, 12,000 photos latter my K-x is showing no signs of wear at all really, let alone about to fall apart.

My battery door moves a tiny bit also but never had any creaking on either the door or grip and I'm about 7000 shots into it.

Thanks for your comments. I guess the creaking was just unpleasant.
