use it with 12800 ISO for astrophotography daylight up to 1600 ISO: very good photos CA's are eleminated with new PENTAX lenses But you must adjust high sharpness and high color saturation

Bought this camera for my work, after reading all professional excellent reviews. Very disappointed with the performance. It just can’t produce decent pictures. I get a lot better pictures with the Fuji S100FS that I own private. I take about 10 000 pictures a year so I consider me to be fairly experienced. Problems: Scharpness is very bad. Autofocus speed in live view is horrible, live view can only be used for macro purpose when using manual focus. Battery life is not very great. Flash ...

I owned a K-x for just over a year. At the time the K-r was rather well featured for an entry level DSLR it has a solid strong spec which is clearly a cut above most other makers at this price point Lots of things to get stuck into the K-x actually has a more mid level spec compared to most other models in this price range. Decent enough build though the "silver plastic" rim around the top cheapens the look a little 4.7fps is fast enough for many action wise whilst the raw buffer is fairly ...

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 know it;s there in a pinch t. Buying used lenses on Ebay at cheap prices at cheap prices make this camera a "no brainer"

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. Combined with good lenses, I love it - especially the Pentax prime lenses. However there is a list of flaws: 1. The missing red dots to tell you where it is focusing is a very practical problem that takes some getting used to. I centre ...

This is one of those products that the manufacturer made it better than they intended. High ISO performance is excellent. I use ISO 3200 with impunity.

Anything I want from a DSLR after a Nikon FE and a Minolta X700. Color respect is very nice. May be I will forget the beautiful skies formerly given by the Kodakrome 64. Autofocus in LiveView mode is extremely accurate. Problems: Shutter is noisy. And the worse : autofocus accuracy is uncertain with the DA 35 mm macro limited. Lots of shots are blurred. A pity given the high potential of the censor and lens. The small viewfinder makes manual focus impossible : accuracy can not be checked ...

The first DSLR that i brought after a long history with Point and Shoots. However i had already tried a few Olympus units before purchases. Not going to repeat what the reviews say, but overall the camera has been stellar specially in the high ISO department. The 18-55mm kit lens is more than adequate for most users, though the 50-200mm i got was not that great. My mistake as i should have got the 50-300mm which i hear is a very good kit lens. The complains of the in-body IS not working ...
