A LOT of people who would not normally buy a Pentax or a lower level pentax got a K-x for its high iso.....some of those people expect more in the things other than high iso than it has (though it has far more than most entry cameras (I guess why this site has it a higher level....I do think ALL Pentaxes are a level higher here than they should be here).

This seems true. The KX outperformed its price level so dramatically that it made Pentax attractive. IMHO Pentax drops the ball with too few affordable lenses.

Pentax has a good cheap kit and 50-200mm, and the 35mm f2.4. That is it. To really bring in the crowds they need a good cheap 50mm f1.8, and the 35mm should have been f1.8 like Sony and Nikon.

Because Pentax gets poor support from Sigma/Tokina/Tamron it is also important to offer competitively priced mainstream zooms to fill in gaps.
