    I would be interested in seeing how the HDR images turn out from it's automatic processing.

    I think it's cool that they offer different colors. Sets them apart from everyone else.

    Some reviews are beginning to stream in, and it looks mighty fine for the $$$. I'd sort of like to have one as a spare body- it would totally own the old K10 I have for that purpose presently. Hmm...

    I have one, LOVE it, the high ISO performace is great. I didnt buy it for video, but the video quality is amazing also.

    I think the colour idea was great from Pentax, it finally sets them apart from the usual others. But who are they marketing to with these bright cameras?

    How does this thing compare to some nikons and canons? Can anyone link me? Im way too lazy to search. :lol:

    I think many poeple that would not normally buy a DSLR would buy a colorful K-x. It provides many features for the novice yet many performance enhancement that make it very appealing to the experienced also.

    Thats what I though, it seems they are marketing to teens that buy bright point and shoots just like canon did with avril lavigne.

    I jumped over to Image Resource and checked out their sample pics (test images).

    Check these out.

    The K-X at ISO 1600 next to the D90 test shot:

    Check out the complete loss of detail in the red pattern. I'm guessing they're doing some SERIOUS in camera NR to kill the red channel like that. You can see the color shift in the pink as well.
