Thanks for the link Andrews. I did not go thru the whole article yet, but at least looks like they have some decent pictures of the camera itself.

Based on the review summary, here are the ratings (if someone is interested):

Build quality and controls (Jakość wykonania i ergonomia): 4.6 / 6.0
No complains.

Useability (Użytkowanie): 3.5 / 6.0
They are complaining about the delay between taking picture and getting preview on LCD screen. AF speed is also mentioned.

Resolution (Rozdzielczość): 5.3 / 6.0
No complains here.

White balance (Balans bieli): 4.6 / 6.0
No real complains except small note that pictures are usually warm-toned which can be corrected thru camera settings.

JPEG Picture quality (Jakość obrazu w JPEG): 5.0 / 6.0
They mention about some noise in 400-800 range that goes up with ISO plus that lightly sharpened images appear to be soft (?).

RAW Picture quality (Jakość obrazu i szumy w RAW): 3.1 / 6.0
Major complain is hot pixels with long exposure times plus inability to turn the noise reduction processing off during long exposure.

Tonal range (Zakres tonalny): 3.8 / 6.0
Hope I translated the topic correctly
Major complains here is the high density of pixels on the small sensor which degrades the image quality.

There was a 100+ post thread on dpreview on this very article a couple of days ago:

K20D proffesional review (Polish) [Page 1]: Pentax SLR Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review

Just a warning to those who read the thread, somewhere on the first couple pages the thread makes a turn for the worse in regards to those of Polish descent. It rights itself and becomes a more technical critique of the tests a page or two later.
