Summary: This camera is amazing! It has better reviews than the Nikon & Canon that are in its price range. It is easy to use, for photo enthusiasts, but my professional friends were pretty jealous when they saw it. The ISO goes up to 6400, which was pretty amazing. It comes with 4 AA long-lasting batteries.
Summary: If you are looking for a camera that you can use for filmmaking. then buy this one! I was in the same rut as you (if you are looking to make movies), and I did my research and this camera is amazing at taking video and the fact that you can change lenses makes it even better!
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...
Summary: Received my Pentax K-x camera today at suprisingly the same time as my May issue of Popular Photography. This issue has the full test report of the K-x and I just couldn't wait to read it. The little Pentax compares favorably with the Nikon D3000 and the Canon Rebel XS.

Summary: After extensive research on the web, I eliminated the Olympus and Canon models in this class and went Pentax, and there is no looking back and I am glad I arrived at the K-x. Without even opening the manual (I will later), I was taking photos with ease - in both auto focus and manual focus modes.
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.
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.
Summary: I have owned my Pentax K-x white body for some time now. I took it on Med Cruise last Oct/Nov and then put together MyPublisher large photo books using Lightroom 2.0 as my editor. The photos are FANTASTIC!! I get raves whenever I show the book to people.
Summary: This is everything i hoped for & more. The new magnesium body is much more durable then the plastic, and its scatch resistent.The ability to hold it & access menu options with one hand is another great feature.
