    Ha, I actually had a chat with him last evening and had offered my two cents. Maybe other guys can share their opinions too.
    I say the lens is the soul of a camera. What about the body? Well, it's just the body...

    AF speed can vary as there are alot of factors that can change how fast the cam can af lock.

    The lens also plays apart .

    But pentax is known to be lagging behind competitors in af.
    If im not wrong canon w/L lenses focus the fastest... it just turns and stop, unlike my lens , turn,turn,turn then stop...

    Ok ok.. Sorry to OT...

    Actually i think someone here own both the kx and k-7, felixcat8888 , his signature says it all ..
    Between k-7 and k-x, (using once or twice), i don't feel any difference between them leh... maybe never really test the difference between both.

    I have not put the K-x to a full test as yet. I have been using more of the K7 as I do shoot for the school and I use it with my DA*16-50mm.

    I want me to do a comparison must wait until 24/25th May as I will be at Suntec taking pictures of my school dance team at the Singapore Youth Conference opening ceremony . . .

    Sometimes with SDM failure, it won't even turn!

    Recently came upon this thread, it's about the autofocusing of K20, K-7 and K-X.
    More information to look at for the time being.

    Hi,

    I have been reading up on getting my 1st DSLR and seems 80% sure its going to be the Kx, with its reputed excellent image quality and small portable size. The use of AA batts helps too.

    The other choice is a Nikon D90 for its colour, but as I am just a casual shooter, may end up not using alot of its functions... out of budget too..

    I am thinking of getting the Pentax body onli with a Tamron 17-50 f2.8 as my onli lens. As the tamron has 2 versions, with and w/o VC, what do you guys recommend? Does Kx have built in stabilization negating the need for a VC lens?

    Also, I have not seen on the price guide any info on the availability of something equivalent (in price) to Canon's 50mm F1.8 for pentax. Do you know of anything?

    Thanks, hope to hear your advice

    Hi Welcome to clubsnap!

    Pentax in built body stabliser negate the use of a VC lens. I remember one thread saying that if you use both lens and body stabliser together it will cancel out each other. So you can save some $$$ from there

    Also, I have not seen on the price guide any info on the availability of something equivalent (in price) to Canon's 50mm F1.8 for pentax. Do you know of anything?

    So far there is no equivalent of any 50mm AF lens as compare to the cheap Canon version. The closest AF one is the FA50 f1.4 which cost about $500+ now...... However, if you don't mind manual focus, you can get a fast f1.7 M or A series 2nd hand primes which is priced $100+ or so at the moment.
    Body - K-x, KX, ME
    Lens - DAL18-55, DAL55-300, DA 35 Ltd, M 50 F1.7, A 50 F1.7, Sigma 10-20

    Now will spend time playing and exploring my new K7.....If got questions, i will know where to seek help.........ClubSNAP. I will join you guys for outings (if timing is correct) and learn from you guys...
