If "action" is varsity HS football under lights or indoor basketball then I'm afraid no kit lens is going to get you shots.
Yeah, it will most likely be outdoor shots of kids playing in the backyard. But thanks for your info. I'm going to go with the Pentax K-x

Either a Pentax K-x or Nikon d3000.... Any thoughts?
I agree that the K-x is a way better choice over the D3000. It is a much better camera in pretty much all respects. Way better low light performance. Has HD at 720 if video is something you are interested in.

It may not fit 100% of your needs with the kit lens, but it is a much better starting point then the D3000. And it has a great price point also.
