From Louisiana...and from Nikon

First post as an introduction.
I'm in extreme south Louisiana, a small town newspaper journalist, columnist and photog who has been using Nikon for more than 20 years. Nikon has priced me out of their lineup, and I started looking around for a new DSLR about 3 months ago. After a lot of research, I settled on the K-x. While an entry-level camera, I was impressed by review after review of its ability, and though I was shooting semi-pro Nikons before, the image quality, ISO performance and very much the diminutive size of the K-x won me over as well.
Though I'm still learning its ins-and-outs, I am extremely impressed and pleased. I'm just running the kit 18-55 DAL and a 55-300 DA green-strip.
I shot Pentax when I first got into the business, 30 years ago, K1000s. So far, I'm glad to say I've come full circle. Most of my non-work photography is nature, wildlife and fly-fishing related.
Price-for-price, image quality and much more, I am glad I made the switch.
A few from my initial test run:
