-Maybe om prefers plastic bodies and this one is metal
-Maybe Om wants metal and it is plastic
-Maybe he is used to the K20D size and thinks it too small
-Maybe he has tiny hands and wanted it even smaller
-Maybe he thinks it is ugly
-Maybe it is only available in black
-Maybe it will come in different colours, the black one is is only a limited series

Did I forget anything?
Dutchman are very smart...

Oh? So still no AF-assist lamp?

It's worse than that: I don't WANT an AF assist lamp!! These things are so scary they make everyone duck and cover when you're about to take a picture!

I'll be glad if AF is indeed able to stand on its own with the K7.

After all, """""""AF weaknesses""""""" (with sufficient " " indicating that I am only speaking for myself and according to my particular experience and needs) were the main reason I switched to Canon, long before I even considered a FF camera which was more a "since I am switching, why not go the all 9 yards?" kind of thought process.

EDIT: BTW, I just realized that you "confirmed" (although in a very "rumory" kind of way) that there won't be an AF assist lamp on the K7. Hooray it (kind of) worked!!

You said, that it will be real semi pro aps-c camera. But what is semi-pro? Canon has d450 semi-pro camera and 40D + 50D pro aps-c camera?
450D is popular class.
40D and 50D are semi pro APS-C.
Canon does not have a professional APS-C.

QuoteQuote:
Nikon has D90 semi-pro camera and D300 pro aps-c camera?
No, the D90 is popular class/advanced enthusiast DSLR.
D300 is a semi-pro APS-C.
Nikon does not have a pro APS-C.

So new K-7 will be at same level like 450D & D90?
No, it won't.

You're not saying that the new AF system is IR-only?

No, it won't.
It's camera hard to say about class. But, it's not D90 at all.
Higher. Pentax always makes special cameras. Not ordinary.
