    K-7 Ten reasons why:::

    This made me chuckle and feel warm and fuzzy as only Pentax can...

    http://pentaxdslrs.blogspot.com/2009...r-and-k-7.html

    That brings me to the ten reasons you should own a Pentax DSLR:

    1. Your friends have Pentax DSLRs and that gives you a chance to borrow their lenses.
    2. The Pentax line has a shake reduction built-in the camera body; essentially making any lens mounted on a Pentax a “shake reduction” lens.
    3. Your friends have Pentax DSLRs and that gives you a chance to borrow their lenses. You can also take picture of your friends and them of you.
    4. You have noticed that for the money, Pentax has the best equipment around.
    5. Your friends have Pentax DSLRs.
    6. The Pentax management and employees, at least here in the USA, are the friendliest in the business. Their President and some of the employees have blogs or participate in the various forums. Do you even know who the other companies’ presidents are?
    7. Your friends have Pentax DSLRs. The Pentax forums are full of friendly members.
    8 Pentax have some of the best lenses, particularly the Limited Primes.
    9. Your friends have Pentax DSLRs. Pentaxians are not pixel peepers, they shoot real pictures. The photographic world is still waiting for RiceHigh to post some real pictures instead of 100% crops of brick walls, taken in the dark at ISO 3200.
    10. Where else can you find a DSLR with the following capabilities for around $1,300.00?

    11: There is not so many Pentax Users in Australia so there is less chance of someone borrowing your lenses ... [if if they do they are not so hard to find]

    So does that mean that the K20D is still the future for CypherOz photographic world domination?

    Sadly I've had a play with a K-7 and even though I love my K20D the K-7 is just blinkin brilliant.
    Working on the upgrade plan now.
    Just glad its tax time.

    Yeah - I said before I wanted a bigger sensor - but just use the K-7 in a shop - soooo much good stuff - it will make you want to give up on SoCaNikOly.

    12. Your friends and you can stand in the rain or sandstorm or blizzard and have a chat, while casually taking photos - without a worry in the world about your camera and lens being damaged

    13. Pentax Limited pancake lenses allow you to pocket your camera, literally!

    I like the sound of the 'in camera level' but I think I'll stick with my K20D for now.

    I have both. I use both bodies. The K-7 for birds, wildlife and most stuff.
    The K20D comes along with another lens on to compliment what I'm shooting, often the wide angle.

    The K-7 LCD, live view, frame rate all matter to me. Live view (with horizon) for landscapes is nice

    It was this review that made me fall in love with the K7 about 2 months ago. Great review, thank you Mr Huff.
