Shutterbugs May 2010 & the K-X

I got my copy of Shutterbug today and they had a great write-up on the K-X, I think I'm going to get the wife one and retire her K100d.

Decent article but dinged it on the focus points and seemed a bit noncommittal. I did think that it was ridiculous that the review of the sony 550 made a big deal (probably 30% of the article) of HDR processing while it got a one line mention in the Kx article. It ticked me off a bit that the Kx has basically all the features of the 550 except that it's 12 vs 14MP and the Kx has video. But it is twice as much as the Kx and has worse high iso than the Kx but the Sony gets a better sounding review.

Of course I'm a bit biased.

I got my issue yesterday too. I haven't read the Sony review yet but I thought the Pentax Kx review was pretty positive. The focus point issue has been brought up by every review, not just this one. He mentioned that he considered it a suitable backup for a pro wedding photographer to carry and the excellent image quality in low light shots. Thats a pretty good endorsement for an "entry level" camera.
