I am aware of the differences between them, but my question is if i could be JUST AS effective having the k-x rather than going for the k-5??!!
I have both cameras and there's very little difference in image quality between them. If you're on a tight budget then definitely get the K-x, it's a fantastic camera.

K-x FTW, unless you are shooting in the rain, lots of action, or in really quiet churches.

I actually have a k2000d and a k20d right now!! i am really in need of a camera to include video now!! what do you recomend!!
Are you satisfied with the K20 image quality? If so, you could trade the K20 for a K7 without too much loss -- image quality is about the same, but you would get some step up in several areas (including video).

With kx and video, the biggest thing is the lack of microphone input. Of course, as others have suggested, you can use an external microphone and sync it after the fact, but it is easier for me to stick a mic in the hot shoe.

Image quality is pretty similar between K5 and kx, but the kx will require more menu diving to make changes -- has fewer external controls.
