Congratulations levelred, You will enjoy it a lot. Don't forget to feed it a steady diet of Sanyo Eneloops or Eveready lithium energizers. After the firmware update it will be very happy!

Remember the storm trooper is camo in the snow!
thanks

PS with your web name would have thought a red K-X would be on its way.

They're about $497 on Abes of Maine for any color kit, there is a $15 off coupon as well as 3% cash back. Sell the lens for $30 in the marketplace if you have to.

Since the Kx kit lenses don't come with lens hoods (or is that only for the black cams?), that's not a big deal. The FW being updated is a huge plus for a used camera as somebody else has already taken the risk. If YOU did it and bricked it, $$$.

Enjoy the camera..

My white K-x came from Amazon, and it doesn't come with a lens hood. I also got a new one off eBay for cheap to return to Amazon, and that didn't have one either, so it must be all colors.

A lens hood is one of those that is stripped from the K-x lens kit since it comes with a DA-L lens which doesn't really come with a lens hood.
It is also the same for the DA-L 55-300mm.
If it's got no scratches and looks like new + a firmware update then you got yourself a very good deal!
Congratulations!

How do you know the FW is up to date? The LCD when powering up doesn't display the actual version. Did you use PhotoMe?
