Excerpt: I'm very new to the Pentax line of equipment and I must say so far its been great. I recently bought a pentax k-x going from a Nikon D90 mainly because of size and weight. I researched so much on which camera will perform as well as the Nikon D90 but much lighter and smaller and I finally found the perfect one - the Pentax K-x.
Pros: Small and lightweight, great all around performance, HD video, lots of fun digital filters, very low noise at high ISOs
Excerpt: Great build quality, feels good and solid in the hand, also not a bad looking camera. Nice small size for an SLR, works well with a gorilla pod. Takes terrific photos in almost all conditions. Pop up flash is lacking, but thats to be expected. LCD screen just plain sucks, but its good enough to give photos a quick glance. Kit lens isn't bad, but it isn't great either. Battery indicator gets weird but the firmware fixed it (mostly).
Excerpt: All the major points regarding this camera have been mentioned before, but it deserves a lot of praise for such a powerful camera in such a small package and a cheap price. This one is hard to beat for a while to come...
Pros: High performance for entry level, great value, excellent sensor IQ and high ISO results
Cons: Basic movie mode, slow AF for movies, no live AF for movies
Summary: Very good starter camera for the price! Used to own a Pentax K100D and sold it a while back because I never used it. I decided to buy this one for family pictures and such and couldn't be any happier with my purchase.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Quiet
Excerpt: I'm not goint to write so much about this camera. The K-x is my first D-SLR and so far it truly satisfied me. The IQ is simply great. Both RAW and JPEG results are really good. This camera can even compete with Canon 40/50/60Ds and Nikon 90/300/7000Ds. The sensor does it's job far beyond than just fine, it is very good.
Pros: Image quality, price/performance, useful
Cons: Size, no af points, small viewfinder, no lcd sreen on top
