nice! How do you like it compared to the K100D? how is live view and video?

Want to post any full size NR off, RAW, and maybe step through the NR options? any comparison shots with your K100D?

Wow, very nice. The last shot at iso 6400 looks like what my old K2000 would produce at iso 800. I hear that the K-x uses the same AF as the K20D, is this true? If not, then how is the AF and how does that compare to the K20D and even the newer K-7?

If you expose properly, there is very little noise at ISO 800 with the K2000.

The K-x supposedly uses the same AF system as the K2000, which is a good thing as the K20D's AF is slower.

I'd like to see some high iso examples in the field, low light, etc versus a controlled environment where iso 100-400 could have easily sufficed.

Those examples look pretty good, but I am not sure what the camera would produce on the street. Curious to find out though!

I had a 5 minute play with one in a store during my lunch break.
AF is fast and very responsive.
Shutter is loudish.
Live view was a bit slow focusing, then suddenly snapped into place...took a couple of seconds.
Red model I saw looked more dark pinkish...should you be interested in that...

These are some incredibly impressive shots. I would love to get my hands on one of these to play around with, see how I like it.

Like others, I'm interested to hear your overall impressions of it and how it compares to the K100D and other bodies.

great exampley, thanx for sharing. hand out more if you them. one question: does it support focus adjustment; what I mean is, can you compensate for back- or frontfocus from the menu? If so lense wise or just global? -thanks!
