So far, I'm impressed.

  • Summary: This, being my first SLR doesn't leave me with a lot of material to reference for a comparison. But from my perspective, I have so far enjoyed very much my time with this camera. I have already surprised myself with the results and look forward to growing creatively with my k-x. I'll update this review as I explore more of the options and have spent more time with this camera.

Great Entry level DSLR

  • Summary: I am very pleased with the Pentax K-x DSLR camera. The build quality is solid. The image quality (particularly at high iso settings) is also great. HD video recording and Live View are nice additions for an entry level DSLR. It has some really fun features like HDR and cross processing. I already have a Pentax K1000 film SLR camera so I can use the K-mount lenses from that camera with my K-x (using manual focus).

Thrilled

  • Summary: I am absolutely thrilled with this package. At current pricing, I am convinced it is the best deal out there for an entry-level DSLR - and it has more features than most people could possibly use in a lifetime. The addition of the 55-300mm lens over a base package adds a whole dimension of flexibility and is well worth the premium. Beginning with Consumer Reports and their "Best Buy" rating, I read every review and bit of information I could find on the K-x.

an entry DSLR cannot be better than this

  • Summary: In short, awesome camera. Have used Sony's and Nikons before, this bowls them over. Canon DSLR have nicer depth perceptions in outdoor situattion at lower ISOs, but the clarity of picture taken by this think is simply mind blowing. You cannot lose with this. More updates coming soon...

Great Value but not perfect.

Michael D. Levad "sciencemike", Amazon

  • Summary: The K-x is my first DSLR and I did a ton of research before purchasing it. In general I love it. The image quality fabulous. The auto-focus is fast. I love that I can buy old manual lenses for it that are super cheap. I bought a 50mm 1.7 for it that produces wonderful portraits. The kit lens is very nice. I only have two real gripes with the camera. #1 is the codec that pentax chose for encoding video makes for GIANT files.

Why I decided on the Pentax Kx

Mike C, Amazon
8 February 2010
  • Summary: I am an avid reader of reviews and many times use this information to help in my buying decision. Since I suppose I am like most others who shop, compare, read, read some more and still can't decide I hope this might help in your quest for the right camera. Of the cameras I tried, all were very nice and I would be happy with any of them. I have been looking for a camera that will give me the biggest bang for my buck! I hope to spend more time using my camera as a hobby.

Incredible camera for the money.

  • Summary: I started with photography by using a Pentax K1000 and that was the last SLR I bought. I've owned a myriad of point and shoot digitals and have played around with digital SLRs. After MONTH AND MONTHS of research I chose this one and I have never looked back. you get more from this camera then you do for one of the more expensive other brands. Remember Megapixils are only one part to a great camera.

Good Value / High Quality

J. Farr, Amazon
31 January 2010
  • Summary: I've owned this camera for over a month and I am pleased with the images and quality. The quality of the camera is exceptional and the image results are exceptional. However I have has problems with dust on the sensor and have had to clean it already. In addition it goes through battery very quickly. Lithium-Ion batteries are really the only choice. I've gotten about 700 pics on Lithium, 200 on Alkaline and it didn't work at all with rechargeable.
