From what I find the k30x is only 4 pounds more expensive than k20x .

Would it be an exaggeration to get that?

Do you think any downside expect the +100grams?

Some may opt for the lighter version because their camera/lens combo is not particularly heavy. I went for the lesser of the 2 Manfrotto's because the bigger one cost £50 more, & the one I got held my stuff well. If there had only been £10 difference, as there is with yours I would go for the K30x. You might want to add an off camera flash & a grip which bumps the weight up. For so little extra I would go with the bigger one. just my opinion.
