if you want a near silent shutter you can also step up to the relatively compact and much more usable pentax K7 as well

That's an interesting comparison - I've just put the K7 and X1 side-by-side on my desk, and they're really very different in size and weight (even with the 40/2.8 on the K-7). The X1 is also significantly quieter - because all those lovely tiny Pentax Limited primes use screw-drive focusing, and only the much larger DA* lenses have ultrasonic motors. So no, sorry, it doesn't offer the same combination of pocketability and silent shooting at all..

meanwhile the Pentax K-x has been out 2 months without a review, and is a serious alternative to, for example, the d3000 which was just reviewed.

What makes you think we're not reviewing the K-x?
