Summary: Bought this after a ton of research. So far I'm very impressed with picture quality, ease of use and overall value. My "camera friends" (e.g., those who work with cameras for a living) were impressed with the camera given its price.
Summary: This is my first experience with DSLR photography. I have been very pleased. I really like having both lenses, because it allows me a vast range of zoom, which is important to me since I like to shoot a lot of nature shots, and many nature shots require a high zoom because subjects do not stay...
Summary: My first Pentax was a Spotmatic many years ago, great camera. Obviously Pentax has only gotten better over the years. This is an exceptionally easy camera to use, lightweight, fun, and produces fantastic photos. Great buy!
Summary: I love this camera. I am not a professional, but bought this learn the art of being a photog. I have taken amazing shots and have learned a lot. It is fun to play with all the different settings. It is not a bulky camera which is great as I have small hands and I can hold with one hand.

My previous "super zoom" camera has a number of weaknesses that became more and more frustrating: * inability to shoot in low light (ISO 400 is the...

My nice Nikon plus lenses got destroyed in an accident, so I was looking a replacement using the insurance money.
Great Camera! wish I could get a defect free one though...

Summary: The Pentax K-x was my first SLR, and I got it after a lot of research in which emphasis was on compactness, image quality and features/ease of use, and a huge plus for the K-x was that it accepts standard AA batteries.
Summary: Well, as a first time DSLR owner, I must say this product is great for beginner like me. The AutoMode is great, it is helping me to shoot really nice pictures already. There are 2 things I don't like. 1. Video - it is limited to 4GB or 25 minutes of video 2.
