Hands-on preview of K-7 available at Imaging Resource: "quantum leap for Pentax's SLR

Fairly extensive:

Pentax K-7 Digital Camera - Hands-On Preview - The Imaging Resource!

From the introduction:

"There's a lot to talk about here, this camera is really something of a quantum leap for Pentax's SLRs."

Good article.
They are really impressed with this K-7.
They even update the article, on a daily basis. They just added a bunch of new info, regarding video.

Some interesting stuff for sure, e.g. :

“With the introduction of the K-7, Pentax appears to be positioning itself as a leader in the rugged camera category, making a smaller camera that is better sealed against the elements, with 77 seals that deliver "weather, dust, and cold resistance." That latter point is perhaps the most unique, with no other digital SLR of this class offering a promise of durability down to 14 degrees farenheit.”

“Electronic leveling. Thanks to an internal leveling sensor, the K-7 also offers an electronic level function that actually rotates the sensor to a level position when enabled, correcting for errors of one degree in either direction. The Pentax K7 performs this unique trick whether held horizontal or vertical.”
