Summary: Bought this camera after doing a lot of online research (and returning a Canon G11 P&S). Build quality is good, the economies taken in production to meet the entry-level price point are generally well chosen, and if you are making the leap from a Pentax film camera to digital, you can use your old...
Summary: I have just begun using this camera. Pictures are great. Color is a very bright red but I'll keep it. Lightweight, but that's good. Wish lens cap had a string to keep attached like my our SLR. Good price for the features.
Summary: The Pentax K-x (with the two lenses) is a terrific buy, and the little guy is all I could hope for (I got the white version which is just too cool). I have old K-mount lenses from my early SLR days, so the K-x value to me is multiplied several fold, a wonderful addition for what is my "grab camera.
Summary: I'm a amateur, I have been using p&s for many years and this is my first DSLR. Shipping was so fast! I got it with two kit lenses at [...] from Portable Guy via Amazon.com, free shipping, UPS delivered within three business days!
Summary: This will be a short and brief review: Pros: * Excellent super sharp pictures * Compact, feels tough and good handling Cons * Slow and inaccurate autofocus - extremely frustrating at times This is my first DSLR after having used Canon Digital Film SLR.
Summary: This camera is simply awesome. I used to be a Nikon 35mm SLR fan and user.But Pentax has proven to be the best quality out there right now.The image quality of this camera is just amazing and sharp,ease of use right out of the box.

Summary: Let me start off by saying that I have been a huge Canon fan for years and absolutely love all things Canon, though they can be quite expensive, especially when you get into DSLRs. The K-X is the answer, it's light, portable, so many different options (especially for someone who's coming from higher...
Summary: I was so impressed to see all the features that I could get in this entry-level-priced DSLR! I was considering the Nikon D5000 or the Sony A390, but I could get everything those had for a lower price in the K-x (& Pentax is a well-known name in the world of SLRs).
Summary: I was in market for a mid level DSLR for about a year. I bought Canon Rebel T1i before purchasing this model. After keeping the Rebel for two months, I decided to go back to market. Here is in short my take on the comparison between Rebel and K-x: 1.) K-x is much faster 2.
