In the meantime, you can buy a manual 50mm lens for cheap and get some great low light shots. The SMC-M 50mm f/1.7 is usually a bargain, and should be $100 or less. If you get an SMC-A lens, that means it's auto-aperture (meaning the camera can set the aperture for you).

Anyhoo...that's a good and quick way to get some nice low light lenses. You'll just have to manually focus, but (I think) you'll still get a focus-confirmation beep even when you manually focus. (At least, the past dSLRs have. Not sure if the KX retains that feature.)

Thanks for the advice.

Playing with the new camera today (luckily a holiday for me) and I am really loving it!

Here you'd rather get a black one, and I'd really like a white one (sigh!).
