Excerpt: The K-x is the far best camera I ever used, only thing I don't like is the manual mode and the settings, I liked it when Bulb was on the shooting mode button, made it easy to get to and you have to use one wheel for everything, shutter speed, F/stops and such.
Excerpt: This is an amazing camera, especially looking at it's price. The sensor is simply outstanding and can beat much more expensive cameras. The body is rugged and althought it's not weather sealed it can stand some bad weather conditions, I photographed in the Sahara desert without any problems at all (no sandstorm though
Pros: low noise, fps, body construction, IQ, value
Excerpt: I'm very happy with my k-x. It is very usefull the feature to command external flashes in wireless mode (P-TTL). I like to develop raw file in camera for a better white balance setting, CA correction and so on...
Pros: Image quality at high ISO, small, raw file development, external flash wireless control
Excerpt: I went from the k100d to a K-7 & believed it was the perfect mix of features for me.. but it didn't fit me as well as I had hoped. Worse yet, my Lumix G1 was as good or better at iso2000 so it was stealing time from the Pentax gear. When the budget got tight I sold the K-7 and 18-135 and bought this, my micro-4:3 killer.
Pros: compact, many bonus features, excellent hi-iso
Excerpt: I purchased this camera because I saw the comparison between this one and the Nikon D90, the Kx beat the Nikon by a mile. I have no complaints, in fact, I bought a separate body to avoid switing between a large lens and a macro, which I always carry. This camera is updated with all the wisthles some of the competition cameras do not have. I can use manual lenses, the ISO goes to 6,400, although I have great photos at 3,200. In general, I love this camera.
