Summary: This Camera is amazing, definitely the best entry level Dslr on the market, by far! it's light weight, stylish, easy to use, while also having advanced features, such as the in camera processing, which spares you from purchasing such software, i highly recommend this camera.
Summary: Excellent camera! More than satisfied! The screen is normally on for just a few seconds so battery life is extremely good - most often 2000-3000 shots per set of batteries. Viewfinder is excellent, too, especially in sunny conditions. The viewfinder can be adjusted to provide sharp viewing even for users of eyeglasses. The camera can be used in a simple way and still give good pictures.
Summary: Bought this camera as my 1st DSLR and couldn't be happier with it. I talked to a few people who said I wouldn't get the same photo quality as a Nikon or Canon, but DON'T LISTEN TO THEM. This camera takes awesome photos right out of the box on auto, and still gives you plenty of control to take your photos to the next level by tweaking all the settings. For this price, you simply can't get a DSLR with a fuller set of features.
Summary: I got my first job in 1987 to buy my first camera, a Pentax K-1000. It's a manual workhorse that's never let me down and I've been a die-hard Pentax fan since. I've also been reluctant to make the jump to DSLR from film. I have a point and shoot digital but nothing for serious photography. I've been intimidated by all the features and functions of a grown up DSLR. I now know this is the camera I've been waiting for.
Summary: Overall I am very happy with the K-x, it's lighter and more compact than my K-10 or 20 was. because it's more compact some of the dials and buttons got thrown into a menu style access. This doesn't bother me that much because I'm not doing weddings anymore, if I were I would try to at least get my hands on the K-10.
Summary: I recently made the switch from my SLR Canon to a Pentax K-X DSLR. My SLR captured stunning detail and I just wish I could get that detail with my new Pentax. I cannot and it saddens me. However, I like the easy to use settings on the Pentax and I like it's ability to utilize high ISO that I could not do with my canon. I am not extremely happy with the stock lens- It is the same lens as my canon but its capabilities seem severely limited in comparison.
Summary: I have had the chance to try several brands of DSLR's (Nikon, Canon, Olympus) and as they all have great qualities in each, I have found that the Pentax Kx has all that I could need and ever want in a camera at this time. I say 'at this' time because as my photography grows so will my needs. The Pentax Kx is super light weight and fits the hand so nicely for one hand shooting. It snaps pics in a jiff with great clarity and gives you that instant gratification.
Summary: Having done a ton of research before purchasing this camera, I was not dissapointed once if started using it. While it is one of the cheaper options for entry level DSLR, it certainly does not lack in features. Maybe the biggest benefit of this camera would be the ability to use older Pentax lenses, which is perfectly compatible to this model.
Summary: Me pasé nuevamente de COMPACTA a SLR, lo dudé en comprar PENTAX (antes había usado dos CANON), pero me atrajo el DISEÑO y el KIT ofrecido con un buen precio, la he usado una semana y me ha gustado mucho, práctica de usar, buenas fotos, y software amigable, hasta ahora 5 estrellas, esta semana la usaré al aire libre y haré mis comentarios.
