Summary: I had/have many digital cameras but for the short time I tried this one, it is a keeper. The settings and menues are nice - the low light quality is great. Even the lens is great - especially for being a "kit" lens.
Summary: I bought this camera as an upgrade for my K100Dsuper, to use as a second body to supplement my K20D, and for when I needed better high ISO performance than the K20D. It ISO 400-800 the image quality might not be quite as good as the K20, but beyond that, this camera is absolutely amazing.
Summary: I have experience using film SLRs as well as a Nikon DSLR, and I've owned a few Canon compact cameras. After quite a bit of online research, I chose this camera to be my first DSLR, and I am very, very pleased with my decision.
Great little DSLR Penatx got it right with this one!

Summary: I am an advanced amateur and have been shooting with an SLR since the early 70's. I bought my first digital in 1999, a Nikon 900s, and fell in love with the technology. I've owned many many DSLR's since Canon introduced the first affordable (it was $3k)EOS D30 many years back.
Summary: I come from the world of point & shoot, but I recently had a European trip and needed a new upgrade. I looked into entry level DSLR's and came across this particular camera. I did my due diligence looking at offerings from Canon and Nikon but to me this camera offered the most appealing features at...
Summary: For a first DSLR this is a great camera! Its direct competitor in my opinion would be the T1i. However with a much lower price point and very similar features, this seems to be the better buy. Overall it looks great, works very well and is lots of fun!
Summary: This is my first DSLR; my experience includes years of shooting film SLRs and digital point-and-shoots. After a month of shooting a few hundred photos I'm pleased with the K-x. The kit (body + 18-55mm and 50-300mm DA lenses) is a great package for under $700.
Summary: After a LOT of research, I settled on the K-x. The price, features and ease were what attracted me to it. And I haven't been disappointed so far. Clicked about a 200 pictures this week, battery life is still full.
Summary: I am getting amazingly strong action photos at little league games. The focus is solid. The images are outstanding. One of my photographers shoots with a Nikon D5000 with a 75/300 VR lens. The photos off the Pentax are as strong if not stronger. You get everything for about $700.
Summary: The first one Amazon sent me had some coatings missing on the smaller lens. Both lenses in the second kit looked used (judging by the threading in the back of the lens), but at this point I did not care as long as the camera worked. Amazon returns are great!
