The finished image is what counts to me, so as far as I'm concerned, if the quality of the image isn't as good, it's not an upgrade.
The one exception to that (I think) would be if the other upgrades allow you to make pictures in places where the other camera would not.

Well I think what i'am going to do is keep the kx and save up for a k5. In the meantime I'll get myself some better glass and keep watching listening and hopefully learning.
You certainly make a person think
thanks

If it was me I would get the k-7 and keep the k-x so the k-7 becomes the outdoor shooter with weather sealing and all the stuff while the k-x has great noise performance for indoor use and weather sealing is not important.

But im just a poor guy

Its a body and feature upgrade, but its a downgrade on sensor performance.

I've got both - got K7 first and got Kx for my wife to stop using my camera!

The K7 is a fantastic camera- it gets a bad rap as the ISO isn't as good as the Kx, but the Kx doesn't have a lowlight AF assist light

Basically get the Kx if low light is your thing otherwise get the K7, it is an absolute steal for the money and really frees you up with learning to use a camera (it was my first SLR of any kind).

my K-7 had the shutter shake issue as well as the noise. Hard to get a sharp image from 1/50 - 1/100 sec.
I'd keep the K-x.

Thought I would re-post as I thought you were choosing between a Kx and a K7.
Keep the Kx- wait untill maybe the replacement for the K5 comes out and grab a cheap
K5 then If you have to spend money now get more glass

No, not at all. I am a stickler for sharpness and edit my serious photos at 100% view and I never had this issue eventhough Falk's study I think implied all should, and I think it's not just the K-7 which is probably worse than others according to the study (I could be wrong, just going by vague memory here).
