Thank you all for answers.

I can´t buy K-x here, so that is not a solution for me, and I don´t want to buy a used one.

I know that this is not a perfect camera, but this is not cheap for me. The bigest problem is that I live in shity country, so if I buy camera and there is some ff problem I can´t turn it back and get my money. Only I can do is send to service. Obviously lot of people don´t have a problem, but a lot of people have. I don´t know anymore. Maybe I will wait a K-r successor.

My K-R was awful. Miss focus even in the shade of a tree during daylight conditions. I sent it to Pentax service (in USA). It was almost two months before I got it back, but now it is good. Slight front focus in tungsten light when set to AWB, but not bad at all when WB is set to tungsten. Pentax service can fix the K-R focus problems if they want to.
I'm thankful to still be able to...
