"Nikon D7000 has a metal shell, but Pentax K5 is plastic. I prefer metal"(your statement); not true. I think the K5 is sturdier than the D7000 and metal. No plastic if you prefer metal, you should get the Pentax.

The K-5 is irrefutably more sturdy and durable than the D7000 body. That body is an all-metal chasis.

The D7000 can claim nothing of the sort, other than magnesium alloy "components."

Mujana is right - if build quality is a priority, then once again, just another reason the K-5 is the APS-C leader.
