Pentax K-7 Image Samples
I posted that already this morning.

Btw, all the four samples required +0.3 or +0.7 EV compensation, no matter CWA or New 77 Matrix Metering was used, which is really worrisome from the very beginning!

The scenes and subjects don't look tricky to me neither. Hope the K-7 don't go down the route for an infamous DSLR for wonky metering and exposure once again! (as all Pentax DSLRs do, IMHO)

I won't be surprised if you do. You are so predictable.

Hardly worrisome. Without any available comparisons (whether it be the results of an incident light meter or a different camera), 1/3 or 2/3 ev compensation means absolutely nothing....unless you can verify that the metering area averages out to middle-grey.

As for sharpness, details & colour - I'm looking forward to having a better look at the samples on my lunch break

In truth, I expected much better sample photos there. Maybe there is a hidden messahe in them that I cannot understand what, but NO WOW this time, still. I'll give another chance.

P.S. - Their turn to have a lemmon on hands!

They're okay to me. Not spectacular, but okay. From my time in reading camera reviews dating back to 2002, I always thought reviewers were able to take photos that better show the strengths and weaknesses of a camera as opposed to sample images hosted on official websites.

I suspect the firmware is also undergoing last-minute tweaks hence the need for testers. I'll wait for user reviews.

Sample images are very rarely great. I find most of them boring, regardless of brand. They just shows - surprise! - that the camera can take images. I never bother about them really. Not really worth discussing.
