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.
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.
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: I'm a loyal Pentax person, thanks to my dad - this thing is really cool. Obviously the way it looks is sweet - but it is a serious little camera too. I'm sure it will be outdated by the time I finish this review - but hey - you can't beat time!
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: 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.
A white DSLR? Show it off. Go on, you know you want to.

Summary: Look, I'm not going to pretend I bought this camera for it's "awesome" photo taking abilities. Nor shall I pretend I bought it because it's "fantastic". (You'll notice these words seem to crop up many times in the 19 previous reviews). I bought it because it looks cool. Yes, I admit it.
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!
Summary: It is a good DSLR, and I have used it for a month. The batteries can last long time, and quality of the pictures are pretty good. I am still learning how to use all the functions. So far so good.
