Sorry I only meant that they weren't heavily built like the top pro models from Nikon and canon.

Certainly pentax cameras feel as substantial as most of the other cameras, but I haven't seen a tank-like model.

Are you not confusing Big wioth strong.?

Magnesium Alloy
Weather resistance
-10 - 40 C operating range

Sounds pretty heavy weight to me compared to anything else

Canon 5d magnesium alloy no Weather sealing no Temp rating
Canon 1d Magnesium Alloy Weather sealed no Temp rating
Nikon D4 mag body weather sealing 0-40 c

I can find no camera besides the k5 rated to operate in -10C and no body that out-rates it mag alloy and weather sealing

So who has a tank like model that is more durable than the k5.?
