The body is cool, but it has one problem for some users.
You need a new battery grip.

Of course it has "a problem". More than one, actually, depending how hard you're searching. Ogl, as usual you don't say anything at all - zero information, nil, nada.
But even with the limited information available to me and a little bit of extrapolation, I can find some "problems". One can always find "problems" with a camera, as no camera is perfect - then, you would expect probably to be congratulated, because you were "right"

So, I dare you to tell me (us) a piece of information (real information, not speculation nor guessing) that is not publicly known about this new camera. Just a tiny, harmless piece of real information.

Yes, although that was to be expected. But I think the real problem lies in the fact that the camera won't accept D-LI50/NP-400 batteries anymore.

Looks like there is a problem with FPS or shutter .. new grip or new batteries are not problem.

I agree that this thread is useless, but if you don't like it, just ignore it.

(And of course there will be something about the K-7 that some users don't like. That's almost a tautology! Tell us something we don't know!)

Ok, I tell you something, perhaps new:
From the press photos I have seen, one can compare the mirror sizes.
The mirror in the K-7 is about 5% larger than the one in the K20.

EDIT: Wrong, see below.

That is interesting Wieland. Are these the photos we have all seen posted? How could you tell the increase was 5%? What do you think that a larger mirror means with regards to the sensor? Was the mirror square? Are you sick of all my questions yet?

okay, that should mean 5% bigger sensor - for different aspect ratio photos with same FoV. just like some panasonic and olympus cameras.

I suppose you are looking at the same press photos as I have. If so then sorry Wieland, you are completely wrong. Maybe you haven't noticed that for some odd reason Pentax chose to take that shot with the ground glass screen frame in the down position. I.e. that's not the mirror but the ground glass screen!

Hmm ... I will look again.

EDIT: Sorry, Asahiflex is correct. That's odd.

OK, what pictures are you talking about? Are they available for public display, or are they only for people with NDA's?
