Strange, the door compartment doesn't seem to be using a locking mechanism as the K20.

I suppose it used something like k200d (at least i looks familiar to one i have) and k-m (not sure about that)
Yes. Slides out springs open. No lock.

The body is cool, but it has one problem for some users.
...It is too small...

Wow, they must have changed it from the k100d door design cause that one is a bitch to open. You have to break a sweat...

The problem of K-7's body is NOT PROBLEM as itself.
It's the problem of alternative - what kind of body you prefer...

So this is it. It will be the users problem if them found out that K-7 is compact maybe roughly the size of K-M +/-.

The grip will definitely be the problem for some.

The grip may not be as small as it may seem, as I compared my K20D with the DA35 attached (like the photo of the k-7 with DA35 attached).

For me personally, someone with big hands...I won't own a camera without a grip. That is, a camera I use a lot. Film cams are different since they don't get used for 400 shots in a day, for example.

I'm going with:

"If you like small cameras, it'll be too big"
and
"If you like big camera, it'll be too small"

What, you use a cable instead of a card reader?

I like that springy door too
