Stylish and slim hah... that sounds a bit off for a semi-pro camera ... at least in the SLR sense of things...
Unless it is a rangefinder or something

Let s hope that they kept in track with fixing major issues like noise and AF, rather than throwing their money and building the camera's cost on questionable things like square sensor and such...

I would really hate to see a camera with the same problems but with weird new features

K-7's AF is better than Canon's. IMO. I can't say if it's better than Canon EOS-1D Mark III, but better than all rest cameras.

As for Nikon D300 - it's hard to say, but i think it could catch D300 up...
And naturally you have hands-on experience with the K-7 and a few lenses and some Canon cameras to compare too... or did you just derive that from a picture on a brochure?

I am sure it will be the world's smallest hurricane machine. All others I am aware of are MUCH bigger

AF points is not important.

I'm sure May, 21 is the Big Day in Pentax World.
K-7 is camera with SOUL and powerful, stylish, slim and hurricane machine.
The camera can make happy almost every Pentaxian.
Looks like a giant Viagra pill with a K-mount and strap lugs

I have no pictures. It's very important question for me too.
I'd like to see weaker AA filter than K20D has, but lower noise.
Have you tested body? I thought you might have some pictures to make comments.

Nice suggestion. I've been wondering myself why this kind of thing couldn't be done in camera. It's probably quite processor-intensive though.

Yeah sure... I suppose it's "DA BOMB" that the K20D was supposed to be

That is a bold statement to make. Although it depends on the definition of "better", I suppose.

not really. panasonic G1 (or is it GH1?) does exactly that - tries to fix vignetting and CAs in-camera. panasonic even got adobe to do the same for raw files - adobe camera raw automatically quietly fixes those issues when opening raw files.

I think ogl is in fact not a pentaxian, but is working for either Canon or Nikon. Building up great expectations of how the K-7 will surpass certain properties of other DSLR brands, only for the new K-7 to not meet certain expectations. Then, the disappointed pentaxians will go buy the closest thing to what ogl's K-7 was supposed to be, a high-level Canon or Nikon DSLR.

sigh. :ugh:

I hope this isn't true! I would love to see all the improvements that ogl talks about, I don't need all those. I enjoy being different and interesting with Pentax. I'll still be waiting patiently for May 21, hopefully to be impressed enough to cough up the money to upgrade my K200D.

ogl,
How about the high ISO noise performance? How does it compare with the K20D and/or the D300?
As you know, when you announce a camera there are still no finished products to supply because there are final tweaks to accomplish. You may know the spec but only when they start shipments you can test the quality of the product. What OGL or others() may have seen or test handled are early product samples which cannot be representative of the final aimed Quality. So he cannot answer that question now.
