  • Excerpt: The K-7 was my first DSLR after progressing from a Ricoh XR-P film camera via a terrible little digital P&S. My initial feelings were mixed. I loved the look and feel of the K-7 and felt immediately at home with the controls and layout.
  • Pros: Handling, weight, solid feel and construction, WR
  • Cons: Fiddly SD Card removal

  • Excerpt: The K-7 got me back into photography after a hiatus. And in the last three years I've taken very nearly 95,000 frames with it. It performs very well and translates images from old and new lenses with great color and clarity.
  • Pros: Very capable, good low ISO performance, easy to learn, packed with features, great size, outstanding image quality
  • Cons: Very poor high-ISO performance, AF searches sometimes

  • Summary: I have owned this camera since Feburary of 2011. The features have been written about extensively so I will write about how it is to use it. I have pounded this camera in the dirt, dust, wind, rain, and snow. I have had it photographing offroad races, wilderness in all seasons.

  • Excerpt: Noise is more an issue in low light than when using high ISO in daylight (ie when doing bird in flight shots) ISO 3200 acceptable in daylight, 1600 where the scene is dark. RAW does help. And FYI, the K10d is much more noisy - you have to use a flash when shooting above ISO 400 with the K10d.
  • Pros: Build
  • Cons: High iso
