New K-x owner

Well almost it will be here tomorrow, guess what I'll be doing tomorrow afternoon and evening?
Back I can't remember when I had/used a Pentax P30 which replaced my ME of which I still have both with lens. Got the bug for a digital when they weren't even rated by MP. After several different ones I ended up with a Fujifilm S600fd which is a good compact camera. While reading the forums over at digitalgrin someone had a new K-x for sale so I went and looked at the specs and started reading reviews, well that did it I had the bug for a dSLR. After some research I decided that for the price I could afford that the K-x was my best choice.

I will be using it to take pictures of nostalgia racers, the grandkids playing sports and other activities. I also take pictures for some activities at my American Legion Post and the Patriot Guard Riders. Plus a few days of vacation no and again.

Thinking about taking some photography courses at the local community college to improve my skills.

Welcome! The k-x is a great camera in it's own right even without regard to affordability.
Enjoy it, and WE EXPECT PICTURES.

As it turned out I didn't have a much time with the new K-x as I had hoped for but still managed to snap off about 100 shots. Here a couple of my favorites. Cropped and scaled but no other processing took place. My 1st impression is that I really like it.
