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: First off, I'm not going into a full review of this camera, as that was done very well by several other reviewers. I will however, list the immediate pros and cons. Pros: 4.7 fps continuous shooting, excellent low light capability, excellent value. Cons: Biggest problem with this camera in my opinion, is the LCD screen. Works fine for the menus, but when you playback an image, the screen resolution is obviously not high enough.
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: I have shot Canons and Nikons of various levels and bang for the buck you cannot get a better value than the Kx. The high ISO is astounding, comparable to cameras costing three and four times as much. Entry level does not do the Kx justice. The Kx compares very well to far more expensive cameras in features and image quality. Get it.
Summary: I've had this camera a little over a month and love it. I carried it on vacation and took about 200 pictures with it. The pictures are very crisp and clear. It copies the images to the memory card fast and it does well in low light. It feels very sturdy and is easy to hold with one hand. I really like how I can use many of my old manual focus Pentax K Mount lenses. A big warning though, use Pentax brand K mount lenses only.
Summary: Other reviews here will provide you with in-depth information, and I won't disagree with them. All that I'll say is that I never thought I'd get as much use out of this camera as I have. "These DSLRs are so huge compared to my regular point-and-shoot that I'm certain I'll only ever use this for special occasions, such as weddings..." Not true.
Summary: I recently upgraded from my beloved Olympus e-510 DSLR with the 14-42mm and 40-150mm kits lenses in order to get a DSLR with better low-light performance and HD video capabilities. I loved my Olympus, but image quality took a nose-dive at ISO 800, and I liked the idea of having an HD camcorder built into my camera to capture high quality family photos and home videos in one device.
