K-7 gathering at Pentax Europe

This weekend, Raimund Schuster (famous owner of TeKaDe, the Pentax shop) and Wolfgang Baus (from Pentax Europe) organized a hands-on day in Hamburg, still location of Pentax Europe HQ.

This gave a number of customers the opportunity to gather first level experience with the camera, incl. blende8 from this forum. I for myself couldn't make it as Hamburg is the other side of Germany...

The overall feedback is quite enthusiastic. blende8 himself wrote "K-7 is great". In particular, a couple of experiments to track moving objects (a running Pentaxian, a biker, a car driving by) have been successful. One has written: The predictive AF now actually is it: predictive ...

You may want to read more about it here (warning, contains German language ):

- :: Thema anzeigen - Meine Anmerkungen zur K-7

(All images (c) blende8 and cross-linked from his photo group site ->!)

Others may add to the information, or ask blende8 directly (as I didn't attend the meeting).

I don't suppose anyone knows of somewhere in Paris, France to fondle a K-7? I'm away from London for this weekend so won't make the SRS event.
