Surprised Pentax dropped the K-x this far by now considering how well it's selling. Guess this is may be a clue that Pentax will announce alongside with the 645D, a APS-C between K-x and K-7 for a price of around 750.

I'm getting the 2-lens kit myself, but I wish it came in white. Apparently Pentax only bundles the 2-lens kits in black. I thought about it, but the 55-300 for about a $175 upcharge sounds like a deal to me.

Seems like good buys. Wondering what you could reasonably flip the kit lenses for either here or on Ebay: 18-55, 50-22, 55-300?

I hope you bought it through their beachcamera ebay store, same price and 10% off through bing cashback - edit, whoops bing cashback doesn't work in Canada!

Wanted to point out to any ebay vip program participants that today-only the % back in ebay bucks is 5%, rather than the traditional 2% as well...

I was surprised to see the k-x on display with the other dslr cameras when I walked into a Compusa store. Before that, I had never seen a Pentax sdslr camera at any place.

I'm afraid this is just wishful thinking. Pentax looks to me like they are sticking with a two camera line up (APS-C). I just think they are being pushed down by new releases like the Canon T2i.
