Pentax K-X vs. Pentax K-7 instead of Pentax K20D

Ok guys, the biggest question between these two cameras are
1)First problem is video... I want a dslr camera for shooting small movies with friends for fun and for myself. As I understand K-7 is better suits for me?
2)Second problem is resolution. 12 vs. 14 mpx camera is nearly identical I think...
3)Ergonomic... Winner here is K-7 for me.
4)Noise+Dr - and here winner is K-x. And it's the main question. I often shoot nightsky and other same things, also I love to shot nature. And here the winner is K-x, no questions.
What do you think is better for me - go for video or really upgrade from Pentax K20D in terms of picture quality?
Or maybe the 3d way - wait for K8?

I'd buy K-x as a second body and keep K20D.

No need for second body for me... I'll prefer to buy more lenses

Video is quite similar between the two. Checkout vimeo's K-x videos.

Resolution is pretty similar, K-7 resolving slightly more:

ergonomics, DR/NR you've decided.

Biggest difference is the price and other K-7 features.

However they're both very good. See the recently-posted "LCD Crash" video on vimeo.

As I understand "Midnight Smoke" made with K-7 and "LCD Crash" with K-x?

My father has Nikon D90 and I used video there - K-7 produce better video for me... and k-x i think produce the same video as Nikon D90.
