I'm a Pentaxian now. Woohoo !!!

Hello,

I have been exploring these forums since last couple of months when I decided to buy the Pentax K-x. Finally I took the plunge yesterday and got my Pentax K-x kit (18-55 + 55-300) today. Ordered it from Buy.com for USD 629 + free shipping yesterday afternoon and got the camera today morning. It was really nice doing business with Buy.com, I'll highly recommend them.

Here are couple of photos of my new toy (last set of photos using my P&S).

Along with the camera, I also got Caselogic TBC-307 SLR Camera Backpack (Black), Giottos CL1001 Large Cleaning Kit with Small Rocket Blaste, 2 Transcend 8GB Class 10 SDHC Card (TS8GSDHC10), LensPEN Lens Cleaning System, SANYO eneloop 4 Pack AA NiMH Pre-Charged Rechargeable Batterie from Amazon. I already have Duracell Pre-charged NiMH batteries I'm using for my P&S.


Have been reading the manual since yesterday and now off to take some sample photos. Hope I can find something interesting in this cold weather.

Thanks a lot guys. I know about those manual lenses. So tempting. However, I have exhausted all the budget that approved by my home ministry, so no more camera related purchases for a while.

I have posted a shot using my new K-x in the photo critique section. Do take a look and provide your feedback.

Well, I'm currently in US for a short time. So utilized this opportunity fully. We don't find Pentax cameras in India. No service centers either. However there is a very enthusiastic user community in India, so I'm not worried.

EDIT: Updated the location field to reflect my current location. Hopefully no more confusion .
