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.

Haven't taken the time to read your other replies, but this really discloses that you've not ever handled the metal-bodied, fully weather-sealed K-5, at least.

Anyway, from the DPR review conclusion:

"The K-5 is small but perfectly formed. The magnesium alloy body shell is rigid and the whole camera has a feeling of reassuring solidity which belies its dimensions. In general we love the way that the K-5 is designed. All of the major controls fall easily to hand, and the positioning of the various control points is very sensible."
