Summary: I purchased the K-X with the two lens kit with the 18-55 lens and the 55-300 lens. This is a wonderful little camera; the autofocus is fast and accurate, the menus are clear and easy to use, the picture modes let you play with your creativity or you can use it for just point and shoot, and it has...
Summary: I can write on & on about PENTAX. I was a Canon analog user since I was 8 years old. After a 10-year interruption with my photography, it was time to get into digital. I started with a FUJI bridge camera (S9100). Looking @ Canon dSLR models did not impress me at all until I handled a PENTAX *ist DL.
K-x is great for beginners, will even satisfy picky prosumers

Summary: This camera absolutely excels in LOW LIGHTING CONDITIONS. It works with thousands of Pentax lenses, and picture quality is at least as good as any of the competition at this price range. If your worried about battery issues, don't be.
Summary: My first DSLR. Have had Film SLR in the past and loved the creativity that can be accomplished with a manual camera. Hated the hassle and price of having film developed. Went to point and shoot digital and lost interest in photography.
Summary: The Pentax K-x is probably the best dSLR in its price range and an excellent value for the money. Image and sensor quality, assuming good lenses, is excellent, better in some cases than more expensive semi-pro Canon models.
Summary: This is my first digital SLR. I have sparingly used my friends' Nikon and Canon cameras. When compared to those, the Pentax K-x red is very good and suits me well. The Pentax K-x is also very cheap. It looks like price has nothing to do with quality.
Summary: This is my first DSLR. I am impressed with this DSLR via the other great review and eventually jump in to obtain one for myself. After about 500 shoots, it performed excellently and up to my expectation. First, the performance is first rate at the same category. It is fast and quick.
Summary: I've been searching for a new digital camera for a while now, thought I'd cross into the DSLR realm. I'm spending less time at bars with a point and shoot and more time with friends/family at events where I can actually carry around a decent camera if I wanted to.
Summary: I was looking for my first DSLR and at $470 shipped from Amazon, it was a low risk way to try it out. I shoot several thousand pictures during my trip to London and Paris and results look really good.
