I am Mariakruse and I live in the Southwestern US. I bought a Pentax Kx a couple of years ago for a totally shallow reason, (it was red) and found that I really liked the quality of the photos. I also enjoyed being able to do multiple exposures and best of all, since it looked like a less serious camera, being red and all, I could get some great street shots. WHen I would haul out my Canon or Olympus DSLRs with their big black lenses people got nervous, but with my Pentax nobody took me seriously so I could get really nice candids and natural looking people shots. I still use the other cameras, Canon for the studio and Oly for birdshots, but my Pentax goes everywhere with me. I really love the color of the photos it produces. However, since I liked the camera so much, I kept adding lenses and stuff until my kit bag became a bother for walkabouts. Soooo, I am now looking at the x5 for a possible walkaround camera and save the Kx for more serious landscape work. I was hoping to find information about the x5 here to see if it was a good choice for me.
thank you,
