pentax K-50 what to expect

so I just ordered a pentax K-50 ..

I have read/perused the reviews and watch youtube videos about it.... it seems like it is a weather resistant/weather sealed cam.. mid-range camera..comparable to Nikon D7100 or D5300(?) ..

reading reviews and having the camera on hand is different.. so I want to ask the users here who have it..what do i expect from it? is it light (with the kit lens) ? I like light cameras . I got the red.. i wonder if it will be slippery to hold? i like that it has two control wheels..i like that..

how is the interface?

and that mode dial.. it is not PSAM.. it is different.. hhmm..

i wonder is i can see the difference in using the OVF.. since it has a bright pentaprism viewfinder with 100% frame coverage..
thanks all..
