  1. The Pentax K-7 is the best all around digital SLR I have ever owned or used. As a constant companion this system cannot be beaten. With the DA pancake lenses attached, the K-7 is small and unobtrusive. Yet it is a powerful photographic tool. Every feature needed by an experienced photographer is found on this body. Plus a few extra. Also, it has fully auto modes so you can easily hand it to a less experienced user and simply say “point and shoot”. For years, to have a rugged weather proof camera meant hauling around an enormous body. The K-7 is built like a tank yet is small and light. I have carried it for at least 100 miles of hiking (not all in one day) and it is a joy. Easily hangs behind my arm while walking on the street so it is always ready.Performance is fast and reliable in all conditions indoors and out. Note: startup time can be greatly improved to near instant by turning off the shake reduction feature when not needed.As an added bonus, the “kit” lens included with this body is exceptional. I think Canon and Nikon take pride in providing the most ridiculously crappy lenses in their “kits”. So much plastic you can’t even use them as paper weights. But this Pentax 18-55 is amazing! Weather sealing, smooth manual focus action, and astonishingly high quality optics.As a compact, all purpose system for travel and constant carry, the K-7 plus a couple tiny DA lenses is a pleasure. You can argue over image quality all day. But the reality is that you have to have the camera with you to get the image. And this system is small enough and tough enough that it will always be ready when needed.

  3. I will make this short, this camera is great! I’ve been researching for a DSLR for several years. I just didn’t want to take the plunge because of cost and how confusing they seemed to be. Well I finally decided on the Pentex K-7 after much research. I always leaned towards Cannon or Nikkon but the Pentax just seemed to be a real camera and not all hype. I also really liked the weather resistant rating on this camera. My first impressions is that this camera is great, has a lot of features and I love the quality of pics and the quality of the feel of the camera base.I’ve only had it for about 2 weeks, and I bought the Magic Lantern book with it which I also recommend if your new to DSLRs. I have taken about 500 pics so far and I’m very very impressed witht the prints and the speed of the camera. I took it on a recent hiking trip in Sedona, Az and got hit hard by wind/sand ontop of a ridge and was happy to have such a weather resistant camera. I took a total of 200 photos and all the pics came crisp and clean. The only problem was that I bought a cheap 55mm UV filter which I don’t recommend. I got a few pics of flare towards the west photos during sunset. So I just ordered a B+W high quality filter which I should get in the mail soon. Don’t waste your money on a cheap filter!I also like the software that came with the K-7. It’s not as good as photoshop, but it’s easy to use and you can make good touch ups when it comes to WB and Ev really quick.All in all, I’m a new DSLR user and I’m still learning how to master the camera and digital photography in general. But the K-7 is easy to use and is a joy to work with. I love the quality of the camera and from what I can see the camera takes amazing photos as well. I also ordered a tripod which I haven’t had a chance to use yet but will shortly and will update my review on night shots.If your thinking about a DSLR and want a good camera that wont break the bank but will hold up against the most popular models then buy this camera!
