Poll: Those who already have a K-7, would you rather have a K-x?

I totaly agree with the previous statement. In fact I have bought K-x at first and shot for almost a month with it, but handling, features, controls were lacking. It's a great starter camera but I just needed more. High ISO performance, though imppressive, was absolutely of no value to me since I never shoot above ISO400. Just too much grain and noise for my taste even from Kx. I use f2.8 and below lenses and tend to prefer good external flash over high ISO shooting. About 70% of my pictures are ISO100, 25% ISO 200, and 5% ISO 400. Money was also not an issue for me since I'm buying a body for the next 5 years. So I returned Kx and got my K7. And I'm happpy now. Almost anything on K7 is better then Kx except high ISO performance, which I completely don't care about. Viewfinder, construction, menu, LCD, controls, ISO100 performance (based on my tests), video, and a tone of features/options that k7 has and Kx doesn't - I would not even start listing them. I guess everybody can read the specs :)

So if you are avoiding high ISO like I do, there is no question that K7 is better camera then Kx. The only question is what the advantages of K7 worth over Kx? This is subjective. I beleive for some people K7 worth extra $500. At least for me It definitelly is worth this extra cost.

For SD card you'd need a card with at least 15Mbps write speed. I'd recommend SanDisk Extreme III. This is the only card in my experience that would be able to keep up with HD movie writing on Kx. Other class 6 cards I have cut the movie on 30s or 1 min mark. With SanDisk you would be able to reach the 4GB file limit.

SanDisk Extreme III 8GB can be purchased on Amazon for about $30 shipped. Same 16gb card card would be close to $90.

You have to add the kit to the cart and the price would change. J&R price has changed from $1114 to $1119 now. So the total final price for the kit is $963 shipped.

Well, as people sad here already, if money is not an issue, K-7 wins. In fact I bought Kx first and after playimmg with it for a couple of weeks returned it and bought K-7 and I'm very happy owner of the latest.
