image quality...PLEASE...whatever

Interesting the differences ofopinions on build quality

Didn't notice at first, but review # 1 states it is "rugged"
and the second states it is flimsy? Worse than a sony a230? I've owned an a200 before and it felt like a cheap toy...I don't believe it

I've owned the K-m, and it is the most rugged entry-level DSLR I've held on my hands, with the K-x boasting the same body it is in no way flimsy at all. I don't understand why they don't state Canikon entry-levels which are supposedly "flimsier". Guess the entry-level DSLR K200D having a weather-sealed body upp'd the expectations for the K-x. My K-7 feels just as quality build as my old K-m, only difference is weather-seals which you can't feel, and magnesium alloy body which you can't feel unless it's cold. Honestly the weight differential between the two helps a lot, but does it in no way means the K-x is flimsy. The plastic and the gaps feels very solid compared to any other entry-level DSLRs.

+1. I wouldn't get too worked up over these reviews.
