Nice photos. ? is this the film camera or the Digital K-x? A KX without the dash is a film camera.

I have mine still after buying a K-30. I use mine with a Tamron Adaptal Macro lens. But I bought mine three years ago and have many photos from it. Check my flickr in my signature.

My two K-x bodies are the only DSLRs I have. (or need.) Speaking of concerts, here's a couple I took of the Richard Thompson trio in Iowa City with the K-x & Pentax-A 35-105...

I think you mean the K-x, rather than the KX.

Well, now I know how many people actually read my posts. I commented on his reference of his K-x in my first post.

But he still hasn't changed the title, so people keep bringing it up. A KX is not a K-x.

Some great shots in this thread. The K-x was a low light star when it emerged, and is still solid. If I was shooting concerts, I would definitely take a K-x over a K-5 or K-r for its reliable auto-focus in coloured and dim light.

I checked out your Flickr page! You are very talented! The k-x and the DA50-135 make an awesome combination in he right hands.
