Summary: A number of people have had serious battery problems. It seems some K-x's have trouble recognizing some rechargeable batteries. The supplied Lithium batteries work well and I am now trying NiZn batteries and I have had no problems. Got to[@] to read the postings.If you are a beginner and don't do some tweaking of the settings, you might get some soft photos. But if you are getting a DSLR you are probably intending to experiment with the settings.
Pros: Easy to Use, Excellent in Low Light, Fast Shutter Speed, Large Clear LCD, Nice Features and Settings
Summary: I bought this to replace K100, wife wanted live view. Took camera on vacation, and it proved a great improvement over K100, camera is versitile, quick and fun. Control buttons take getting used too, but overall it is another great camera from Pentax.
Pros: Bright LCD, Easy To Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Great Image Quality, Image Stabilization
Excerpt: I am just starting to familiarize myself with the K-x. My thoughts in this review are preliminary. I will compare the K-x to the Pentax *istDL, which I purchased in February 2006 and use regularly for my job (photo journalist). I have not used other Pentax digital cameras, nor have I owned other brands of digital SLRs, although I have looked them over.
