K7 camera test at BJP Online


Since I haven't seen any reference to this K7 camera test elsewhere in the forum, I'm posting a link to the test here. The so called test is only one page long.

British Journal of Photography - Magnificent seven?

Thanks for the link.
What does it mean, when he writes :
"using lenses with know peripheral frame problems"

under the kit lens section ?

He even likes the JPEG engine

I think he is talking about the known weak corner performance that the kit lenses have at 18mm. Specifically he is comparing the new WR kit lens to the more expensive non-WR sealed DA lenses that are available which perform much better.

15mm f4 Limited Lens Vignettes

Being a newly designed (2008) for smaller sensor lens it surprised me that the 15mm Limited Vignettes.

None of my pentax made lenses vignette, but then again all I use is old full frame K Mount glass.

A well written review. Shame they didn't include any photos taken.
