Just ordered my KX w/ some extras :)

Just got it off amazon bundled with a 55-300mm lense plus two lens hoods.

Opteka 58mm Screw-in Collapsible Rubber Lens Hood / Shade for the 55-300mm

and a Mennon DC-s 52 Screw Mount 52mm Flower Lens Hood, Black

I hope I got the right lens hoods.


The shipping date is saying this thursday through next tuesday so lets hope I get it by the weekend

Thank you all for your input on my purchase!

I can't tell you whether or not the style you ordered is what you want, but I can assure you that you did get the right sizes. the 18-55 is a 52mm and the 55-300 is a 58mm.

The 58mm was cheap and offer "some" protection and the 52mm is a tulip because the wide angle problems I was reading about with standard style lens hoods.

The right choice on both hoods IMO... I have a collapsible rubber for 55-300 and have ordered a few more for some other lenses that have some flare issues...

Congrats on the camera... I am really liking mine and the 55-300 is a bucket of fun

When I jumped into dSLRs and ordered a K20D, my order included (from various suppliers): camera body, lenses I wanted, extra K20D battery, and AF-360 flash. Those lenses that needed hoods, came with them. The battery isn't an issue for you. But I considered the flash a basic part of the package, and I haven't been sorry. It can be remotely triggered by my P&S's too, so it ain't just a Pentax thang. A camera without a flash is like a wrestler without a jockstrap.

Enjoy your purchase, the K-x is a very nice camera!
Just curious, did you buy the white, black, or another colour? And also, did you get it during the time Amazon had that amazing deal?

I'm kind of curious as to why you got the collapsible rubber lens hood for that lens. I might be mistaken, but that hood isn't going to offer much protection for a lens like that. That would be something that would be better served on a shorter lens like the kit lens.
