Hello All, and Best Wishes for 2010!
I am new to ePHOTOzine, and have been reading many reviews, and forum posts. I am planning on moving up from a Canon S5 IS to a DSLR. I have an old Minolta XG1 that I purchased new in about 1982 , but it's been a while since I have looked at any SLRs.
So far my top choice is the Pentax K-x. I really like the low light performance in the reviews (I like to shoot candid portraits, indoors using natural light, which the S5 struggles with), and the 4.7 fps shooting capability (I always seem to catch people with their eyes closed ).
I am hoping that there may be some members who own the K-x who could comment on it's performance, and perhaps some who could offer comments on their experience with the K-x and perhaps a comparable system or sytems?
So far it seems the best "bang for the buck" may be the Pentax.
I have read every review I can find on the K-x, and several on a variety of Canon and Nikon systems, but I'd love to hear comments on real world experience - like what type life you can expect from NiMH AA batteries like the Sanyo Eneloops.
Thanks in advance for your insights.

P.S. - my favorite subject is my 19 month old granddaughter who never seems to sit still for a second, hence the desire for good lowlight performance . I like to shoot video, but it is not my highest priority - the S5 does a decent job with that.
Have a look at the Pentaxuser.co.uk site. It is run by the same Management as this site and has loads of information on everything Pentax.
I own a Pentax K20D and its a fabulous camera. I also frequent the Pentaxuser Site and it is very friendly. The forums on there are very good.
Thanks GPWalton, I appreciate the tip. I'll check them out
