Pentax K-x review
The Pentax K-x manages to offer plenty of functionality in a small package, and produces images of a high standard. As a beginner's camera it provides plenty to explore, while equally it wouldn't be out of place as backup to a more expensive model, given its portability. The lack of AF-point illumination and the low-resolution LCD screen may put some off, but for such foibles it makes up in other areas such as the impressive focusing system. It might not be for everyone, but as a contender to Canon and Nikon's alternatives it puts up a mighty good fight.
