Dear Pentaxians,

I am an avid user of a K-x and planning on upgrading soon to a Kp or a new apsc body they might release in 2019. I enjoy photographing landscapes, portraits and streets. Have been investing in some decent glass recently and my K-x feels revived from its slumber. Happy to be a part of this community.

Pentax K-x lover

I too love the Pentax K-x. I have a Pentax K5 II and a Pentax K-1. I had a Pentax K-x several years ago, and gave it to my nephew to use in college. I missed the K-x so much that I bought one on eBay. Needless to say, I was initially disappointed as the autofocus did not work and it say the batteries were discharged!
But after studying the situation here on the Pentax Forum, I found out that a firmware update my help.
Sure enough, as soon as the firmware was updated, the autofocus worked, and the battery meter showed that the batteries were fully charged! See attached photo that I took just last week with the K-x.

G'day and welcome to the forum. There has been plenty to advance on from the K-x, but it is still a good performing little camera.
