Summary: After 2 years of use the camera is still working great. It was used in a variety of environments, ranging from freezing cold to jungle tracks, ocean sailing and mountainbiking, always carried on the shoulder strap or inside a backpack. Solid, light and efficient. I love it :)
Summary: I have had my Pentax k-x for about 6mos now. I absolutely LOVE it! I researched cameras & consumer reviews for a good 6mos prior to purchasing. I was impressed with the overall good reviews on this camera,& it's price (which has gone up since my purchase).
Excerpt: I have had the KX for almost a year now and I can say after owning a Pentax 200d,this camera has it all!!! I love the High ISO/Low Noise pictures I am getting with it. The white "Stormtrooper" model I have,has people stopping me and wanting one :) Have not used the movie mode much but it's nice to...
Summary: This is one of the best buys I have made on Amazon. I love this camera. It was a great deal with both lenses.The build is nice,the red color is a plus, people ask about about it and I get to tell them how great Pentax cameras are. Pentax is underrated big time.
Excerpt: I have a Canon 450D and side-by-side shooting the same scene in RAW, the Pentax K-x produces a richer image with better dynamic range. The Canon image burns out on contrast the Pentax gives beautiful colours. Since image quality rules, that settles it.

Summary: I purchased this exact camera about a year ago, as a birthday present to myself. I took classes in our high school for three years, for Black & White film photography. Towards the end of the third year, we were able to start learning a little about digital photography.
Summary: I think my interest in DSLR photographer came from wanting better quality shots than what a P&S can produce (though I admit had I known how bad a high ISO was for image quality I may not have ever made the plunge to DSLR).
Summary: As a novice photographer at best, this is the perfect camera. Are there better cameras out there? Of course. With more options? You bet. But this has everything I need and more. Just nice everyday pictures. I'm not making money with this thing, I'm just using it to take pictures.
Summary: Updated: 8/2/11 - Ever since selling the T2i, I've become adept with the k-x especially because of its outstanding handling and features. And even now after owning a new Canon 60D (for its swivel screen), I still cannot let go of the k-x!
