Saw a red K-x in the wild last weekend!

Glad to see someone shooting with them.

By the way, this photo was captured on an EOS 1D Mark IV :-)

It's hard to tell in the photo, I know, but the K-x user is a "she" rather than a "he."

And no, I don't think it's WendyB

LOL. On a closer look I think you are right - that's a she. I didn't look carefully enough.

Beer goggles fail me again.

I frequently take my wife's red K-x out for a spin. It always gathers a ton of compliments and inquiries. Cute girls respond especially well.

If I were much younger, handsome and single, it could be considered a 'chick magnet' alternative to a small dog.

Takes great pictures, too.

Cheers...

For sure LOL! Bring a red K-x, a puppy, and an acoustic guitar to the park and you'll have no trouble getting a date!

If anyone is interested in confirmation of the theory that the multi-coloured K-x's (not just the red one) are very appealing to girls and may be 'chick magnets', just search flickr using terms like 'K-x portrait' or 'K-x mirror'.

Pix related. Just a small sampling of flickr's K-x girls:

Not a self portrait, but a friend taking a picture of me taking a picture of him!

I can't even count the times I've got laid because of my red K-x.

In Euro markets, the link between using the K-x and meeting cute, interesting women was always clearly made:
