Hi All, Decided to join in on the New Pentax Frenzy. Actually I have been a Pentax user since around 1975. Have only recently decided to buy my first dSLR and of course it had to be a Pentax. I think choosing the K-x was a 'no-brainer', I haven't really read any negative reviews and now after having this camera for about 3 weeks or so I can understand why. But then it is a PENTAX after all! Been using the 'old fashioned' SLRs ie. Pentax, Nikon, Praktica and a couple I don't even remember the make or model, for a lot of years (35 or so) But finally this will be it from now on. I can and have tried using my old Pentax lenses and after dusting them off, boy do they work great. Just bought a cheap Sigma 70-300mm Macro/zoom and surprise, surprise it is fantastic for the price. Will upload pics later when I can contain my excitement over the K-x a little better and stop the shaky hands!

Welcome to the forum, there's quite a few folk around here in the 30 odd year plus category, but not everyone admits it.
