K7 oddity...

I was looking through my archive of pics of the K7 and I came upon something that I'd like people to help me figure out...

This side shot here shows a hint of a very large card door... CF maybe? What do you guys think?

I don't believe the door ends right below the photo as the nubs to easily pull the door back are a good distance down from the top of the door and should follow suit below the texture...

Looks identical to the K200D door to me.

would be sweet if it was dual sdhc slots. thats the biggest PITA right now for me, when it does happen...it one battery goes, the other is there and working. if the card is full...gotta stop, take the spare outta the grip and swap. ...

fingers crossed...

My guess that it is for dual SD cards.

My guess - it's just a door for a (i.e. one) SD/SDHC card

I don't see Pentax moving over to CF cards at this point in time. As for the size of the door, I'm looking at my K10D right now and the size is similar. However, it would be a wise move by Pentax to have installed dual SD slots to allow for long video recording times.

The cable release on this side of the camera has me wondering what's on the other side...

I don't think it would be a good idea to split a video between two cards, though perhaps it would be nice to dedicate one card to video and the other to stills.

Dual SDHC or CF, I don't care as long as it's got a good reason to be there i.e. faster etc

Maybe I'm alone here, but I think if they were to use CF in the K-7 (which I highly highly doubt), it would be a step backwards. I think CF's days are numbered. New SD technologies are coming out fairly regularly that are closing the gap in speed/capacity/cost to CF, and eventually I just don't see any reason to hold on to a physically larger format.
