The A580 sure won't be as "durable" as the Pentax... yeah, the price is higher for the Pentax, but you are getting a camera that you could use as a sledge hammer, I think. ...And, people know that!

I see your point, but even plastic cameras can be used as a sledgehammer, literally. There's a youtube video where someone abuses 2 plastic cameras by throwing them on the ground, pouring drinks over them, using them as a hammer and what not, yet they still worked afterwards.

As for your point about an A700 successor: the fact that it won't be a monumental seller, no matter what, is the main reason why we haven't seen one yet, a lower priority. But the relatively large crowds jumping on the entry level SLT's do want something to upgrade. Hence the need to have something there in the very nearby future.
