I'll be focused on the K-X or the K-R bodies. The K-5 is just way more that I want to spend on a camera, especially for amateur shooting of family in sporting events.

Thanks for all the feedback.... A used K-x or K-R is what I'll be looking for in the next couple of months.

I've decided to stay away from the color versions and just go with black... but they seem to be more expense... gee I wonder why.

Well you can also get the black version new for $500, which is something you should keep in mind when shopping used. If used is going to be $400 or more, I'd recommend new.

I don't need the lens, as I'm fine with my other 2 non-kit lenses (Kit lens for my k100 has been in the closet for a few years now).

I'm hoping to find a body only for $370 or less. If not, I can find brand new black k-x with lens for under $500.
