So, it is ...

- standard 14.6 MP IQ, as known from K20D. I don't expect better ISO performance then, maybe somewhat more equal sensitivity in heavily underexposed areas.

- K20D viewfinder, in retro style housing

- Safox viii (or iix on Om81 language ) with slightly better algorithm

So, for the K-7 not to be pointless, the following must be true:

- 5.2 fps (Om81 mystic figure and he said less than 6 fps )

- True HD video (720p@24fps or better)

- 77 zone light metering and contrast AF

- 1/8000 & 1/250 X (if fps went high to 5.2, they probably redid the shutter so this now seems plausible)


I think, this pretty much sums it up. To me , the remaining missing specs are details, mostly.
Like image quality and AA filter strength, Resistance to moire, Color fidelity, ADC quality, base iso, dynamic range, and CA in micro lenses.....

AF surprise - depends on how you define "surprise".
But yes, the camera offers two focus systems - one for optical viewfinder and one for live view and video. And performance for the optical system is better than before, and the performance may be a surprise for those that states that Pentax can't do a camera with fast, reliable and sensitive autofocus.
better and faster AF ? i'm drooling already!

Oh, I am happy with all of this on my K20 (starting to drop the D now ). Maybe, a bit more DR but there are limits for an APS-C sensor anyway ...

Lord, what you think suffers with these pictures
Oh, higher resolution. Tried to extract some more details. I still can't see any difference to K20...

What large black blob is this to the right?

something we're not supposed to know about, it seems...
something new on the lens mount. intriguing...

EDIT: isn't that location of a stop-down coupler?

On my images is no stop down coupler.

I would love to see one though!
