Thanks... I'm thinking that a lot of the DSLR photos that I see on the web that give me that WOW factor are edited. I wish I could find a good website to show before and after editing of these kind of pictures.

most of the wow shots have some editing to it.

If you want to see what a dslr can do without the artsy edit, you can look at allot of the photos I post. Just color boost and sharpening. As I hate to edit.

Here is the k-x with the 55-300 kit lens

Those pictures area REALLY good... I'm impressed. So that was even with the kit lens?

How long did it take you to do the color boost and sharpening?

All the shots were taken with the kit lens 55-300mm

The color and sharpening was a 1 click enhancement in the editing program.

Now, see that is my kind of editing! I like 1 click. I am so tempted to just go ahead and get the Pentax and then if I decide down the road that it's too complicated for me I can always sell it on Craigslist or Ebay and I'm guessing it will hold it's value somewhat.

The pentax has a ton of menu setting and scene modes. That you can shoot it like a super hyped point and shoot until you learn about shooting in the different manual modes.

www.dslrtips.com has good youtube workshops to learn about dslr shooting. And there is a ton of stuff on youtube as well.

Thanks shoturtle! I am a big fan of youtube tutorials so that would be quite helpful.

So, now I'm going to spend the day trying to decide which better suits my needs... the Pentax or the S95.

If I decide to buy one of these today I'll need to also get an SD card... does it matter if it's just a regular SD card or does it need to be SDHC or something fancy? I'm not familiar with the specifics.

Just get a Class 6 SD card to go along with the Pentax KX.
