Summary: This camera lives up to it's Pentax Brand Name. The quality is there, and the images are excellent. My only issue and the reason I returned the camera, is one of personal choice. On the plus side, all Pentax lenses ever made do work with this camera, auto focusing, manual, and all. This is not true of other brands such as Canon or Nikon.
Excerpt: The first DSLR that i brought after a long history with Point and Shoots. However i had already tried a few Olympus units before purchases. Not going to repeat what the reviews say, but overall the camera has been stellar specially in the high ISO department. The 18-55mm kit lens is more than adequate for most users, though the 50-200mm i got was not that great. My mistake as i should have got the 50-300mm which i hear is a very good kit lens.
Summary: We just got back from a Disney Vacation, and it took wonderful pictures. All the Disney employees remarked how they loved the color, and they loved the pictures it took. This is the best camera we have ever owned, and we have had quite a few!
Summary: Great affordable camera, lots of features,and easy to use. Batteries deplete too quickly though, especially in live view and video mode. Have to keep extra rechargeable batteries on hand. Overall I am happy with my purchase.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization
Summary: I just got this camera a week ago and there are still plenty of things I need to learn about it. Features are countless, be prepared to read the manual! I read reviews from various websites about the K-X and it was clearly the winner. I'm a newbie with SLR cameras and I think this is a perfect one to start with. The white is flashy! I always get compliments.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD
Summary: This is my 1st SLR and just like it says everywhere I have read about this camera before purchasing it - it is a great beginners camera. Extremely easy to use and navigate. Auto setting does amazing - love the macro pics. Also love all the filters built in - special effects like pastel and starburst. Would recommend highly to anyone looking to buy a SLR for the 1st time. Also have had many compliments on the white color. Feels durable and light at the same time.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD
Summary: I use it to take low light pictures and it works great. High iso images are very good Have not found any negatives yet, although the lcd could be larger. I did not give it 5 stars because I have not used every feature yet, but thus far I am very pleased with this purchase.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Quiet
Summary: I was looking to replace my old Canon EOS Rebel SLR for quite some time. The Pentax K-x fit the bill nicely. I love the fact that I was able to use my brother's Pentax lenses that he had purchased 20 years ago. The camera has a nice heft to it, unlike some other entry level models I looked at. Using the K-x is intuituve and so far, I have yet to refer to the manual very often.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
