Twin wheels are nice, as is weather sealing and a battery grip. But you can do without them and still get the shot you want - they simply make a few things easier.
just so you don't take them away after many years of use

Not if there's a choice. I really love them that much that I'd go so far as changing systems if they were no longer available on Pentax but were offered on another system, and I needed another D-SLR (not likely, but just speculating here) ... let's hope that day never comes! Hey, by then many years to decades, D-SLR may be a thing of the past! We might be using our pen cams with 12-200mm f/0.9 lenses on a 1 mm sensor with near 0 noise and sensitivity and dynamic range twice that of our eyes!

... the two wheels. I just can't say enough about how much I love having them. ...
I used my single wheel so much in my Ds that it's lame now. Does not recognize wether I turn clockwise or counter-clockwise. Does however feel it's being turned.

I was very annoyed by this. And now I only hope the K10d will not get the same problem. Or, when it does, I can always customize the settings so that the working wheel gets all the functionality

that you can... edit: well, not -all-... one function or the other.

yeah, I did it

Not that I really needed all your encouragement, but I appreciate the help with the rationalization.

I'm pretty confident you'll feel even better about your decision when the camera arrives. (And that is frequently *not* the case with consumer decisions, I find.)
