  • 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.

Pentax K-7 Review

What Digital Camera
21 August 2009
  • Summary: The K-7 is, without a doubt, the best DSLR that Pentax has ever produced. It’ll please existing Pentax users who may be looking for faster performance, better autofocus or even a fairly solid movie mode to add to the fray.
  • Pros: 35 years worth of compatible Pentax lenses, 100% viewfinder, intuitive camera layout, weather-sealing, best Pentax AF system to date
  • Cons: Kit lens is a let down, underexposure can be an issue, AF isn’t as snappy as it should be, high ISO image noise

  • Summary: The Pentax K-7 is, without a doubt, the best DSLR that Pentax has ever produced. It’ll please existing Pentax users who may be looking for faster performance, better autofocus or even a fairly solid movie mode to add to the fray.
  • Pros: 35 years worth of compatible Pentax lenses, 100% viewfinder, intuitive camera layout, HD movie, best AF system (with AF illuminator) to grace a Pentax camera
  • Cons: Underexposed images, no AF in Movie mode, slow AF in live view, in-camera HDR a disappointment, tough competition to compete against - ought to be cheaper

Canon EOS 50D vs Pentax K-7

ePHOTOzine
26 February 2010
  • Summary: Costing £120 less than the Pentax, the Canon EOS 50D at £709 is a great camera that simply gets let down on silly little things. I don't like the Creative auto mode although I guess there are loads of people out there that would see it as a God send.
  • Pros: Great build, Compatible with older lenses, Fast performer, Great colour rendition, Easy to navigate UI, Built-in HDR, Weather sealed, Weather sealed, Good noise control, Built-in image stabiliser, 5EV Exposure compensation
  • Cons: Has trouble with strong white-balance, SD cards aren't as fast as CF, Lots of colour noise at high ISO, Battery starts to fail in cold weather

Pentax K7 Review

LetsGoDigital
24 January 2013
  • Conclusion: Of neem een pancake, die kan Pentax ook goed bouwen. Bovendien heb je dan een lekker compacte set die heerlijk is om mee te werken, met een fijn sluitergeluid en die ook nog tegen een fikse regenbui of een zandstorm kan.

Pentax K-7

pcworld.pl
21 December 2010
  • Conclusion: Aparat jest obecnie flagowym modelem Pentaksa. Na pierwszy rzut oka różni się jednak od swoich „odpowiedników” ze stajni Nikona czy Canona (myślę tu o modelach klasy D3 lub EOS 1Ds). Nie został wyposażony w pełnoklatkową matrycę ani zintegrowany z korpusem grip.
  • Pros: Solidnie wykonany mocny korpus, Uszczelnienie korpusu, Cicha praca migawki, Dobra szczegółowość zdjęć, Nagrywanie filmów
  • Cons: Spore szumy
