My favourite lens on the K-x is the DA 35 f/2.8 Macro Limited.

Most of the time, my DA 50mm f:1.8 will be found on my white K-x. What a wonderful combination of design, quality and superb image production.

I'm another fan of the K-x, having earlier used a K100D and Pentax film SLRs.
I am keeping the K-x, which has been joined by a K-S2 I bought largely for the articulating LCD I plan to use for low-level close-up photography.
I nicknamed my white K-x Moby Dick. I didn't care about the color when I bought it as a used camera through the Pentaxforums Marketplace. I have received several positive comments about the color.
The local newspaper published some of the photos I captured with it.
Best wishes to all.

Well, I've had the little K-x Storm Trooper for over a month now.... and the more I use it, the better I like it! I'm amazed at how many compliments I get on it. A lot of "Hey, cool camera!" comments. Such a handy little tool. It's my "Keep a camera in the car at all times" tool. I now keep the white 18-55mm lens on it (mine is quite sharp!) instead of the DA 50mm f:1.8 and a Tamron 28-200mm and a pack of fresh lithium AA's in the bag. A neat, efficient little kit. It serves the purpose very well!

Bought my black Kx new & still use it, along with two K200d bodies, as my primary cameras.

The Kx is coupled to a Tamron 28-300 full-frame lens. Compact lens with a long reach & a great setup for low light!

Still have my K100d & K100d-Super bodies as well (good car cameras), but the film stuff going back to '84 is long gone.
