Pentax Kx

Am in the process of buying my first Pentax DSLR and was opting for the Kx...

Any known problems associated with this model?

Read a lot of reviews and most are positive...

no focus points in the viewfinder, no manual control over video - just exposure compensation (which is lame), no battery grip, no stereo mic input or wired remote control...basically it's missing a few bells and whistles, and since this is your first dslr you really don't need any of those features anyway

in spite of those few missing features, it's still an incredible camera and without a doubt the absolute best quality ad best for the money, no question about it

Being new to DSLR's myself, I did a lot of homework before I decided on the K-x. I am really happy with it and am learning a lot. I found out later (after I bought it) that it is listed by Consumer Reports as a Best Buy. Made me feel good to see that.

The original firmware has some issues with batteries. So make sure you upgrade the firmware as soon as you get the camera.
