Glad that Brian spoke up about the viewfinder. I don't have a Kx, but I do have the K100 with it's pentimirror viewfinder. I used to carry it and a K10, with different lenses mounted on the two cameras. The only time I noticed a huge difference with the viewfinder was when I had a slow lens like the kit lens on the K100 and a fast lens, like the DA*50-135 on the K10. Otherwise they aren't all THAT different. I find the 100% coverage with the K5 a plus, and for some reason it's flatter matte finish makes it easier to "see" the focus with manual lenses, but otherwise it's not a big enough difference for me to choose one over the other. I wondered if I were missing something, so wasn't sure my experience really applied.
