I am thinking of giving up my k-x to my girlfriend and opting for the k-r but also looking at a used k-7 as they are both in the same price range
I'm back and forth on the K-r and the K-7 as well. Both have some really strong points. The size and build quality of the K-7 is more appealing to me as I have large hands and I'm not the most gentle creature. Plus it has the second LCD and second dial... both would be good when the tripod is lower, I won't have to bend over as much.

The K-r has better focusing and better low light shooting. I think the picture quality is going to win over build quality unless the K-7 drops much lower in price... then having the funds to purchase an additional lens is going to win
