Hey, I'm a Subaru, Apple and Pentax user myself...

Having played around with the K-7 recently, I'd call it a revolutionary upgrade over the K20D. It is that good...

Call me crazy, and I have no idea why I am thinking this way, but I am switching to Nikon - just kidding.

But I am thinking about waiting for 645D. I love my k20D. I don't need 5.2fps. Although k-7 looks super awesome, after all said and done with a grip and perhaps WR lenses or even FA 31 ltd or something like that and spare batteries and so on it will be close to 2G, if not more, and by then you are about a quarter of the way there, with the price of 645D being projected at around 8G. If I had K10D, not K20D, then this is a slam dunk though.

8G..... wow! I think you may need a new computer at that time too. Those images will be LARGE.

Yes, I hear you. I am in the process of upgrading that too. By the way, Eizo monitor rocks.

Pre-order? Premature

No use to me until there's a Kat's Eye (or other similar) manual focusing screen and an Arca-Swiss quick release plate available anyway

Hi Asad,

I read your message and thought you said "Yeah and I'm 41 !" ... getting old is no fun at all

And I send Joseph an email today informing him of his "slippage in position"


So far, no reply

Cheers,

Jack

You can order a grip????

I didn't know the K-7 grip was available for order yet. Where do I look?

Hi Jack,

Haha, no, still got over eleven years to go before I get to that age.

No response from Joseph? Not good, I hope he's doing well.

Not sure where you should look in KY, or the rest of the US for that matter. I ordered mine through a local camera store where the poster above, Jack Simpson, works.
