  • Conclusion: The K-7 is a definite buy for a Pentax shooter looking to replace an aging flagship. It has a huge hardware upgrade, and while IQ difference between the K-7 and K20D aren’t tremendous, it is improved in many areas including long exposure and image capture control.

  • Excerpt: Here's a ruggedly built, wellsealed DSLR that shoots HD video, processes high-dynamic range (HDR) images in the camera, and has a high-end 100- percent-accurate viewfinder. So why do we have mixed feelings about the Pentax K-7? Because this $1,260 (street, body only) camera is a bit of a mixed bag.

  • Conclusion: Pentax K7 SLR camera Pentax does not have an equally big marketing budget as that of Canon or Nikon. That is why the brand remains somewhat inconspicuous, due to all the attention that is claimed by the other brands. However, Pentax certainly is a brand that deserves attention.
