Great camera for anyone who is wanting to learn more about digital photography.

Summary: I bought this camera after looking at many different digital SLRs. I've had it for about three weeks now, and I don't regret the purchase. Too much. I'll get into that. First, the best things about it.
Summary: Ok, so this is the first time I have reviewed any camera let alone a DSLR. I find the Pentax KX to be an awesome camera to which it fits all the needs I bought it for. My sons are involved in sports so one of the major reasons I purchased this camera was because of the high ISO rate.
Summary: I was attracted by all the positive reviews in Photo magazines and online photo websites. After owning and using the K-X Pentax camera for about 90 days I am extremely happy with it. Why pay more for other more expensive brands which offer fewer features.
Excerpt: Anything I want from a DSLR after a Nikon FE and a Minolta X700. Color respect is very nice. May be I will forget the beautiful skies formerly given by the Kodakrome 64. Autofocus in LiveView mode is extremely accurate. Problems: Shutter is noisy.
Pentax K-x Digital SLR - Using non-auto focus Vivitar lenses
1 August 2010
Summary: I'm still learning how to use this camera. I had an old Super-program Pentax 35mm, moved to digital point-n-shoot, now the K-x. I have used my new K-x for landscapes only and have been on two trips so far. I think the resolution and clarity is very good, and the features and options are fantistic!
Summary: I bought this as a back up for the K-7. I shoot wildlife only. I know nothing about any other photography. But i find myself reaching for this sometimes. It is really an excellent camera for the price. I also want to comment on the excellent sensor in the camera.
Excerpt: tough to be negative about this very capable camera. Coming off a k10 which i gave to my son. lighter and easier to handle. I do miss the wheel in the front. As i find working the wheel in the back a bit ackward. Image quality is great!
