So K7 is an improved K20 with "short" video. Not quite worth the $1500 price tag IMO, compared to the street price of $700 for a K20D here in US.
It seems like many don't agree with you but I share the same view as you.

To me it is a minor improvement judging by the rumors only. I can't say much about the IQ, unless if it has a lot better IQ. All of the other upgrades are nice like the 1/8000 sec shutter speed and higher quality LCD screen but I can live without that. I don't think its worth upgrading from the K20D. Now if I still had my K100D, I would get the K7 instead of the K20D.

I do welcome the K7 to the Pentax series but I think I will pass on this upgrade. It is not a big enough upgrade for me from my K20D. I had my K20D since Dec of 08 and there isn't much for me to complain about it.

Well I guess then Sony deserves a medal by putting the same internals of A200, 300 and 350 in new cases few mm smaller, cutting 100 grams and some features in process (2.5 fps vs 3 for 230 and 330) and calling that NEW MODELS

I wouldn't care much about Sony. Last year they had $3 blln losses and some factories to close. Pass on. Canon and Nikon will follow.

Geez, give people what they ask for and it's not good enough!!

Yes the K-7 is a refreshed K20D of sorts but there is enough for many to upgrade to it, I for one will be VERY happy with the K7 if the IQ is equal to the K20d's ( except better at hi iso ) but with the faster fps and af, plus the video, win win for me.

Oh the DUNKABLE sealing is a good thing to, now I won't be afraid of going on a kayaking trip with the cam in white water.

As I don't use 1/8000th of a second and work primarily at 100 iso, I may hang in there till I get to test it out. My 3 K20D bodies have very little ware, as I rotate them during photo shoots. If the IQ is appreciably better, perhaps.

Image quality of K20D at ISO100 with DA* zooms or primes leaves nothing to be improved (at the given # of pixels). So, how could IQ be appreciably better for your style of photography?

Not sure if these pictures have been posted in that over that megathread. Hopefully they were taken from a real body.

Why would you read all 3000 messages when the pictures obviously came out today? It's not hard to just scroll the page and look for a bigg ass honking black image of a camera....

What make a quite good point here for our new K body is 5.2 fps with 1/8000s and AF system. Hope it also happen for the IQ but with the same CMOS, we have to wait til release.

On the contrary, I still prefer the FF K-Body and pass on this.
