Pros:
Cons:
Other Comments: This camera is absolutely perfect for what I wanted in a camera! I ordered it to take on an international trip and I was so pleased when it came FedEx seeing that it is not to large or heavy to carry around for 2 weeks! It takes fabulous pictures and is extremely easy to use and understand! I am a Realtor and this camera is wonderful for taking pictures of homes that I market. It has a nice wide angle lense for indoor shots and the colors turn out real. I have also had fun taking some beautiful pictures of my Grandchildren! [...]

4 out of 5 stars   Good, but dusty bits on every shot
By mkz (Wisconsin) February 08, 2011
Review submitted for Pentax K-x Digital SLR Lens Kit w/ DA L 18-55mm and 50-200mm Lens Red (PKKXKT250200R)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Clear shots, Package came with 2 lens, Good beginner
Cons: Its red, Dust on the sensor
Other Comments: My biggest complaint about this camera is the dust that is visible on every frame I shoot. It may move alittle, but its always there. I have to photoshop every single picture. Other then that, I am pretty happy with the camera. I probably will take it to the local camera shop and see if it can be cleaned. Is this supposed to happen?

4 out of 5 stars   Unbelievable Value.
By Goose (San Diego, CA) January 07, 2011
Review submitted for Pentax K-x Digital SLR Lens Kit w/ DA L 18-55mm and 50-200mm Lens Red (PKKXKT250200R)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Double A batteries, Included zoom lens, Lightweight, Image clarity, Manageable size
Cons: No shooting instructions, Camera case not included
Other Comments: This is a tremendous value and represents a very good entry-level DSLR. I am no camera expert, but I did do a lot of research. The deal through BuyDig was $200+ cheaper than the exact same package through[...]. I considered the Nikon D3100 and Canon T1i in addition to the Pentax. Ultimately, they are all quite good, and the Pentax was by far the best value.
