lens and body compatibility

Hi, My name is Gary and I am new to the forum and to DSLR cameras. I am trying understand how different lens would work with my K-X body. In particular I would like to know if the K-X is a SDM-enabled body.

Yes, it's SDM-enabled. Check out these resources:

The Pentax Camera Lens Compatibility Chart
Pentax K-Mount Lenses Explained: The differences between various Pentax lens series

In a nut shell, pretty much every Pentax lens will work just fine on your K-x, and every modern AF lens will also autofocus.
