The highly rated Pentax K-x

N.B the telephoto lens in this kit is the 55-300mm not the 50-200mm included in recent deals. The 35mm equivalent range of this kit is approx 27 to 450mm.

Superb Entry Level DSLR Double Lens Outfit in Black

The Pentax K-x is a high resolution 12.4 megapixel, 4.7 frames per second DSLR with a CMOS sensor. It features sensor-shift Shake Reduction for blur free still images and video capture (which equates to around 4 stops lenience in shutter speed) and has a large 2.7 inch LCD featuring Live View with face detection. It also has widescreen HD video capture in full 720p resolution (1280x720) at 24 FPS cinematic frame rate and a responsive 11 point wide angle SAFOX VIII auto focus system. In keeping with the fast pace of the Pentax K-x, it features a top shutter speed of just 1/6000 second, allowing the Pentax K-x to truly freeze the action. Other functions contained within the remarkably compact K-x include digital filter functions and a cross processing mode, giving to total control over your creativity and making the Pentax K-x as impressive as it is user friendly.

Pentax SMC DA 55-300mm f/4-5.8 ED - Review

N.B. the 55-300 lens is 440g on it's own and (from the photos) extends a long way physically; you might find the cheaper (though less capable) 50-200mm lens more convenient.

The new K-r has visible focus point and Lythium battery + AA option (the K-x only uses AA batteries). RRP will be £499 with kit lens. I'll wait.

Is that the standard lens kit? If you add the Pentax smc DA 55-300mm it will increase the cost considerably.

The lens on its own is over £300 @ Amazon so the K-r with equivalent lens kit would be over £800.

A good camera and a good lens. The full range from 18mm to 300mm (not just 200mm like the twin lens deal at comet) The 55-300 lens gets great reviews all round unlike the 50-200.

Why buy this when all the new Pentax kit is just around the corner? This technology is 2-3 years old now.

As I pointed out in the previous thread referenced above the K-x isn't being replaced: "The new K-r slots into the Pentax line-up between the entry-level K-x and the enthusiast model K-7." dpreview

This technology is 2-3 years old now.

I agree with the above, there will always be a "better" and newer model around the corner. However, to have the focus point and the choice of batteries is very important to me. I don't change cameras every year (my present camera is a Olympus Camedia 4040, over 10 years old) When I buy a DSLR I use it for a few years to come. The K-r ticks all my requirements and if it keeps what it promises when tested (can't see any reason why not), I will wait and pay the extra.

Whatever, but it is still older technology. If you want lack of focusing confirmation, less pixels, etc and not the choice of other newer entry level cameras released by Nikon, Canon, etc then go ahead buy one. All I am saying it is probably the worst time to buy a camera with loads of new models and pricings released because of Photokina.
