Hi from Sydney, Australia!! crazy, just bought a Kx after dusting off my old MZ-50 which I bought at the dawn of the digital era and never really used. I'm quickly drivng my husband and kids crazy with it.

I'm fairly good at composition but still new to so many features of the DSLR world. This website has been fabulous in helping me decide on which camera to buy and which lenses to go for.

So very grateful to those who freely share their knowledge, not too used to posting on forums myself yet, though!!

Cheers, Kate

Hi Kate,
I had KX for ~ 19 months , very happy with it.
Do you use kit lenses, or have some left from MZ-50?
That is my first DSLR and I think it was the best choice, goes with me everywhere.
Now I added K7 but for casual every day photography still prefer KX.
It took me probably ~ 12 months to feel confident with it and learn how to use my old M42 and K mount lenses.
Welcome and kind regards from the West
