New to DSLR. In market for Pentax K-X.

Greetings! I'm a newbie in DSLR and I'm eyeing on Pentax K-X with 50mm as my first DSLR. I have used micro four-thirds before but I'm not satisfied still on the sensor size - couldn't get the bokeh I wanted. Upon reading the reviews, looks like Pentax has been solid and K-X is a good entry DSLR. I hope to learn and share here in this forum.

Welcome. The k-x is a great camera and pairing it with a fast fifty you will get some very nice looking bokeh.
Since the K-x has been out of production for some time make sure the camera is in good shape, and you should also take a look in the marketplace to see what they have sold for (search in the sold archives. )

You may be able to get a k-r or k-30 for similar prices and those are a bit newer.

Finally got a red Pentax K-X with kit 18-55mm lens for under $300. Now the fun begins. I also got me a nifty-fifty lens - a Pentax-M 50mm f/1.7. I think I'll use this lens more often than the kit lens for two reasons. First, for me to get used to manual photography. Second, it's a better lens than the kit lens.
