I am not leaving Pentax, neither am I getting the K-x.

Re: Better late than never

Why is the K-x Iso better for being the 'entry' level camera? It doesn't seem like they were released all that far apart. Wasn't it the same year? Did the K-7 go out the door and in walked a guy with a better chip the next day, so they put it in the cheaper camera? Couldn't they just start making the K-7 with the K-x sensor and call it a K-7s or something until the new one comes out?

I can't think of another brand where the budget camera does something so important better than the big brother, other than maybe video on some of the newer canon and nikons. You have to admit, it's kind of odd. Makes for some hard choices.
