Pentax K-x Newbie

Hi everyone,

After a long research of entry-level DSLR of different brands (Canon T1i and Nikon D5000), I recently purchased Pentax K-x. This is also my first endeavor in the photography/DSLR world. So far, I'm very happy with the image improvement from point-and-shoot Canon SD series. Mainly, I take photos of my daughters since they are both two years old (precious moments). I have use the web to teach myself about basics of photography. When I research about different Pentax lenses, I came across this forum, and it has given me valuable informations on Pentax and photography in general. Right now, I'm aiming to get a basic 50mm 1.7 to "upgrade" from my kit lens. From what I conclude, that seems to be the optimal, cost effective way to improve my photos further.

Anyway, It's nice to be a member of this forum. I hope to talk to you guys, soon.
