Excerpt: When I held the camera for the first time I said, "WoW!, Pentax really stepped-up the cameras ergonomics wih this new body design." The camera has an incredible feel to it when you hold it, as does the K-5 which is even nicer with the taller shooting function knob.
Excerpt: It is an excellent photographic machine, that is a device to take pictures with. Ergonomics are top notch, AF is improved over previous Pentax models, viewfinder is comfortable if a little small (APS-C), but you can buy a magnifying eyepiece that makes things more tolerable, reliable metering.
Pros: Ergonomics, Viewfinder, Plethora of features to play with
Summary: i had a k-7 briefly (returned it in anticipation of the new k-5 model) and i can tell you that this is a very nicely designed body. it's lightweight yet bombproof and small enough that it doesn't draw a lot of attention to itself.
Excerpt: The bottom line is Image Quality , and this camera deliver average image quality. High noise is present even in ISO 200. * Build Quality - is very good, But build quality is hiding a very average image quality.
Summary: Though I feel that the k7 is an adequate replacement for the k10d I had, I think it's a mostly mediocre product and value given that the k20d can be had for half the price. There are a few features that I think make the k7d better than the k20d: Better autofocus. Better auto WB. 100% view finder.

Le K7 a un boitier tropicalisé solide et fonctionnel, une bonne prise en main, un viseur excellent (plein format) et tout les accessoires ET les objectifs sont d'un prix raisonnable, vu les...
