    Default Pentax K7

    ...so I'm at the camera store the other day picking up yet more lens caps () and the sales person showed me the K7.... dumb idea---------> I ask if I can hold it and try it out ...mannnnnnnnn...that thing is sweet! Fits in my hand perfectly too.

    Now I can't stop thinking about it...and of course the price too....which is the one and only drawback.

    Whatever you do, don't try it with the grip attached. That got me saving up for one. It's such a well build camera, great to hold and yet relatively small and light.

    I'll shut up now. Sorry...
    Listen, three eyes, don't you try to outweird me, I get stranger things than you free with my breakfast cereal.

    I know what you mean, it's a very nice camera that almost harkens back to Pentax's compact-yet-solid 35mm film DSLRs of yore like the ME Super etc.

    Unfortunately I'm not a candidate for a body upgrade for quite a long time coming. But the one thing about Pentax moreso than Canikon, is that the bodies typically drop drastically in price about a year from the introduction and even more when a new model is introduced. And also factory refurbs hit the market.

    The K20D was close to the same price as the K7 when it was introduced and even last year you could get one for about $900 (or less). So just how much willpower and patience do you have, Lisa?

    lol..about as much the bank account of an unworking starving student dictates these days...but good to know that it might be worth it. I can't go into debt over a camera at the expense of another $1400 in tuition fees which are due again in April. If I get a decent tax return due to all the student fees and dental bills of last year I might consider it.
    I tried the K20 (under $900) too but the K7 has a way better hand feel.
