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.

20 June 2010
Summary: IT'S EASY TO USE, TAKES GREAT PICTURES,HAS LOTS OF COOL FUNCTIONS, LIKE THE FILTER OPTIONS AFTER YOU TAKE THE PICTURE.NICE TO HAVE HIGH DEF VIDEO OPTION TOO. I'LL HAVE LOTS OF FUN WITH THIS COOL LITTLE GADGET.
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.
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.
Summary: Ever since receiving this camera in the mail I have got nothing but compliments on the look of the camera as well as the pictures I take with it. I've got the red one. The built in picture effect are great and work very good.
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.
