Interesting comments on the durability, that's something I was unaware of.

I have dropped my K5 from couple of meters on stones in minus 20°C and it is okay...
used it with the set lens 18-55WR on a raft without problems

How are the ergonomics compared to other cameras you've used before?

compared to Pentax K-x it is much better to hold with lot of external controls without lot of added weight and size

I had a chance to handle Canon 7D with the 85/1,2 and 100/2,8 IS macro this weekend and it certainly is a great system...but the 7D + 85/1,2 weights nearly as much as my K5 + 15/4, 35/2,8 and 50/1,7
