Nice. I think Pentax may be on track to start getting back some of their former glory. If only they could get that marketshare...

Yeah. Be good if they got their mojo back.

Even though K-x is entry level and not their flagship, more K-x sales = more Pentax/Hoya lens, filter, accessories sales, as well as potential body upgrade customers in future too.

Awesome 4/5, K-x won something! Best-quality footage too!

Curious about the D5000's placement, the description they wrote doesn't seem to match its place!

It's not 4 out of 5, these cameras are best in at one certain thing (says times). The D5000 isn't #1, just best at being average.

I think he was referring to the the stars count. The K-x scores 4/5 stars.

The unfortunate aspect is when a capable tool is labeled as a "beginner's camera".

Why? All DSLRs on the market are "capable tools", and it's obvious that Pentax wants the K-x to be My First Pentax.

Perhaps the K-x could win multiple category awards (best beginners, best enthusiast, best stylish, best all-rounder) just like entertainers do at the Grammys...

I think if they keep stuff like this up, they'll start getting it back. Things are looking good for Pentax.

Hey, when I teach, I like the students to have capable tools.
