Took the K-x out for a walk recently and took a few shots of some local street art.
It's such a nice, light and compact camera. All with the DAL 18-55 kit lens, which I like a lot.

For the record - Lismore Back Alley Gallery

ISO 4000 on the K-x is as good as ever...

Flying frying fish - Lismore Back Alley Gallery

Reasons to be cheerful - Lismore Back Alley Gallery

A pano

Street art screamer - Lismore Back Alley Gallery

All of these were handheld. Doing these I got the distinct feeling that SR works better on the K-x than the K-5. Maybe it's just a lighter camera/lens combo, hence easier to hold stable.

The boys at DP Review were no less effusive: ‘Pentax has managed to squeeze what is … an impressive feature set … image quality, especially in low light, is the best we have seen so far in the entry-level bracket of the DSLR market … compared to the closest rivals, [the K-x sells at a] very attractive price point.’
So it was a genuine surprise when the first test camera fell short on these fronts:
  1. Exposure was wayward (often too dark) in AV and P modes.
  2. Highlights blew out too easily, while shadows were impenetrable
  3. Sharpness in middle to long distance shots was absent
  4. There was considerable noise in poor light shots
I had no idea what the problem was, but suspected the lens’s AF function. When even manual focusing didn’t improve things, I asked the distributor for another camera.

As far as I'm concerned, the k-x makes anything above it for normal use irrelevant if image quality and color is the qualifying factors.

The above will be the last photo's I post in this thread...

K-x, you have been a wonderful friend...

I've loved you more than most of the people I know...

However, tis time to give your brother K5 a whirl...

You are with a friend of mine now and I'm sure she will love you (almost as much) as I have...
