Thinking of reacquiring a K-x...

I've just sold my k-x which I had from new and bought a used k-5. The k-5 is much better from a usability point of view and bild quality and not that different in the hand in terms of size. K-5 has a much quieter shutter and much better damping. What I really missed on the k-x was that it only had one e-dial so you can only adjust one parameter at a time which is often annoying. AA batteries was also both convenient and annoying in terms of being more annoying to charge and replace but also readily available while out and about.

If you're talking faulty parts to watch for then the e-dial was unreliable for me. I had the whole top plate replaced under warranty early on due to the e-dial and the replacement one had just started to play up too. And once the e-dial goes it's very hard to control anything as that's the main adjustment.

I had a brief flirtation with a k-100d and I think if I got a second body I'd look for a k-10d or something for the different sensor type (lots of people love ccd colours).

Phone cameras have come a long way and can do some amazing things.

One thing he probably won't talk about is price. I just picked up a K-5 which is an incredibly capable imaging machine for AU$500. How many excellent lenses could I equip myself with for the difference between that and a new iphone? A quick search suggests another $700-1000 easily to spend in lenses. Meanwhile, my $150 phone is fine as a phone and portable internet device etc. and is cheap enough I don't have to worry about insuring it.
