the texture is same throughout. Its mostly the front plastic is more of a pure white, while the rest of the camera is more of a pearl white, with a yellow tint to it

sort of like this image:

I asked the seller, but he wont take it back, because there isnt really a issue with the camera, Its just cosmetic. Overall the camera is in near mint condition really. Just for some reason these panels have a little too much color variation. Probably during manufacturing, pentax used different batches of plastics on it.

does anyone know if Pentax sells body plastics for these cameras separately ?

anyone else with a white k-x who doesnt mind this slight variation want to trade? I dont mind a higher shutter count, Mine has around 2k clicks.

I dont like it because it makes it look like its cheaply put together. Sort of like how a car may look after a panel being repainted will look different from the rest of the car, and just wont look right.

Overall I like the camera, but the reason I got the white one and paid more vs a black one, is because of the way it looks, and if it doesn't look right, then I could have just got a black one for cheaper.

I recently got a White K-x in new condition, I really like everything about the camera but have been bothered with the way the top/rear half of the camera plastics are different from the front half. I wanted to see if other owners can comment and if theirs is like that too, or they never noticed it, because on mine, it seems to be very noticeable.

The camera was new, and not refurbished or ever repaired. The top half and rear seems more like a pearl white and glossy, while the front half look more like a matte white. I have noticed very minor color difference in pictures I have seen online, but not as much as mine.

Pentax Kx Price Tracking:

what is up with the prices for k-x's lately? People still seem to want $400+ on ebay, and here I have seen $350 plus. With only a $100-150 price difference between a k-x and a k-r, I guess most people are still going for the k-x because of the front focus issues on the k-r.

I am guessing, k-x prices probably wont drop until the k-r replacement comes out ?

Pentax K-r @ Black Friday?

my experience with trying to buy out of state on Craigslist is that the seller always only wants to do a local sale.

If I was a seller, I'd be cautious too. & as a buyer, you can get scammed too. Craigslist is full of scammers, just have to be careful out there.

but that ad looks ok to me.

i'd say wait... unless you need one right away.

Pentax may be coming out with a replacement for the k-r, so you may find them on sale. Although its hard to find places that sell pentax in the first place.

focus issues?

i thought the multi-point autofocus is supposed to prioritize focus on the nearest point. In your picture, the background is more in focus than the subject. Do pentax cameras not do this?
