I'm another new user. Looking to acquire a k-x and some accessories at more affordable prices. Loved photography back in high school when I played with a 35mm SLR and got to play in the dark room and shoot b&w. Now that DSLR's are actually affordable it's time to upgrade from an aging Fuji S5200 in favor of something that I can use in full manual. My motivation for the upgrade peaked after a recent trip to Paris during which I realized that my photos could be so much more satisfying with better gear. I've really missed the challenge of coming up with artistic shots and being able to compose them fully.
