Excerpt: I've owned the k2000 and k-x and thought those 2 were good cameras. I like this Pentax as well. My favorite part is the rechargeable lithium ion batteries, as the k2000 and k-x used AA batteries that were used up quickly. Cosmetically, I like it that they left the silver decorative chrome off this model. This camera performs well with high ISO settings.
Summary: Bought this item online after doing some research. I wanted a good beginner's DSLR camera that I wouldn't need to upgrade after a year. This camera is great right out of the box with fully Automatic programming. Once you learn the basics. Great HD Video mode.
