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.
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.
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...
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.
Summary: 18-55mm kit lens is very good for a kit lens. However the 50-200mm is rather soft and a MUST avoid, and the 50-300mm is the option to go for (the lens is supposed to very good).
Pros: Loaded with in-built features that reduces the need to redo pictures using an image editor Super price compared to competitive products Though plasticky in material, the build quality is very good and far better than the popular canon T1i/T2i Sensor is the same a D90/D5000 Nikon, so it is able to...
Cons: In-body stabilization effectiveness more like 2-stops than the 4-stops advertised by Pentax Built-in dust cleaning mechanism not as effective as Olympus or Nikon Lack of focus indicators on the viewfinder sometimes a problem when focusing under low light Auto focusing unit not as advanced or capa...
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.
