Pentax K7

Jean from TEXAS "Jean", Amazon

  • Summary: I like this camera so far. It is big improvement over the k10''s I have been using for a long time. Buttons are easy to access and use and I feel like I can adjust the settings faster. I have small hands and it fits my hands well and is easy to hold. I use a battery grip and it is well balanced.

  • Excerpt: ") about a year ago only to have some problems later ... basically in the middle of sensor, a dust "stain" which was underneath the sensor screen. Eventually, after 2 trips back and forth to the repair shop, the sensor and other parts were replaced at half-cost to me ...
  • Pros: Build, size, ergonomics, WR, SR, K mount for legacy glass plus M42 with adapter ...
  • Cons: Noise, sensor dust problem, sensor ... which has its strong points and weak points, too

  • Excerpt: I was glad on one hand that I'd passed on the K-20D for the K-7, but on the other hand hugely disappointed when the K-5 rolled out 5 months after I got my K-7. Most impressive about the K-7 and the K-5 as well, is the very nice & compact magnesium body, that Pentax put forth a very good design in...

  • Excerpt: I give it an 8 because of value - you get a lot of bang for your buck. That being said, the negatives are still there.... I guess that's why the K-5 came out immediately after its release.
  • Pros: Value, Image Quality (at low ISO), Durability, Battery Life, Ease of Functionality... hey, it's a Pentax
  • Cons: (As always) lack of tethering, Noise (anything over ISO 400 is painful), Size (I know it’s compact and that’s a major selling feature… but it’s a bit too small. I need the grip to fit my hand.)

Really Glad I Get This Camera

P. Chow, Amazon
7 April 2011
  • Summary: I struggled for a long time before getting this camera over the Nikon D90. The primary reason is that this camera for me is "free" - from awards points. But when I received the camera in mail, I was complete surprised by how well this camera was constructed. Compare with Nikon D90, this fells SOLID!

  • Excerpt: The only bad things I can say about the k-7 are the standards; lack of high ISO performance and weak dynamic range, the latter being the most frustrating at times. I shoot mostly back country wilderness-scapes here in Wyoming and have found that my more complex images have a crammed look to them.
  • Pros: a tank
  • Cons: ISO above 800 sucks
