Summary: I bought many years ago and I am happy I did. On the dowside I wish the batteries would last longer. The sofware update didn't improve things much and of course the battery always goes out at the worst time.
Summary: with 18-55 II stopped down to F 8-11 extremely sharp photos, nearly no CA's ISO 1600 for tele photos still very sharp. very easy to use. if you'll get some very big posters, you'll discover some few structure in your pictures. The k100d and k200d hasn't this problem.
Pros: high ISO range suitable for astro shootings, high sharpness, good colors, CA elimination
Summary: I bought this one used and am completely satisfied. As far as I'm concerned this is one of the good ones. There are many online reviews and if you want an oldie but goodie see if you can locate one. Being able to use many Pentax lenses is just a real plus for me.
Summary: I still have my old Pentax Kx camera body which I purchased in 1977 as my first SLR. This camera has seen a lot of mileage and went through several hundred rolls of film over the years. The new Pentax K-x is the rebirth of the old trusty camera.
Summary: I received this camera as a gift and have greatly enjoyed it. I am an amateur photographer and usually shoot sports and time exposures. This camera and included lens are not the top of the line from Pentax, but of very high quality and sufficient to meet my needs.
