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 its feel and ergonomics. The camera has an incredible feel in your hands.
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. Most pictures turn out great but things like canyons that have tons of competing details tend to get flattened.
