What does this image shot with the Canon 1Ds Mark-III and 200mm f/2 have to do with the new Pentax?

Well it obviously means that you'll be able to recreate this kind of image with your K 7...

The new camera, thanks to it's new "emulate" button is programmed to emulate the look of any photographer/camera/lens combo.

For instance, press "emulate" then use back wheel to select "Ansel Adams", front wheel to select "8x10 with 150mm" and watch your regular landscapes turn awesome!!!

Yes...Doves, wind, wood and beauty. The wedding ceremony for Pentaxians and K-7 is closer and closer.

OK, I think I get it!

The new K 7 will bring peace to this forum by fulfiling every member's desires!!

Or...

The new camera is so awful that we will all fly out of Pentax's window like doves on crack!!

Or...

Damn it Ogl! Are you in love?!?

Or (even better):

This IS a picture of the K 7 taken with a 1Ds MkIII: Pentax weren't joking when they said that we were going to want to take the K 7 to bed!!

Nope...totally wrong...it's going to match her dress! And the f1 lens they're releasing, as well. They're going after the gay fashion designer market - new camera to be seen on 'America's Next Top Model'...

Cheers,
