Another K7 - K20D comparison test

Last night I put my old K20D and my new K7 through their paces in a head to head test.

After 5 hours in the oven on gas mark 9 (450f/250c) neither of them work at all. I'm not an expert in plastics deformation, so I can't accurately assess which has frazzled worst. They both definitely look as though they have been in an oven on a high temperature for several hours, however.

This suggests that the K7 does not have better high temperature oven baking withstanding capabilities than the K20D, but with the limited sample size I don't think we can be conclusive.

If other users could repeat the test, and post their results on the forum, we could reach a firmer conclusion. Data resulting from variations in both oven temperature and baking time would be particularly welcome. If clear trends emerge, perhaps the thread could be made a sticky.

OK now.
Who do you think you're fooling, Graham?

But now how about some PICS of your oven-roasted K-7 & K20D head-to-head trial....

I enjoyed reading your test as a nice change of pace. I recommend you do a tech column for The Onion.

English sense of humour I think.

Personally I found it quite amusing.

Which was the more tender after roasting. Personally, I've found the K20D's to be a bit on the tough side - unlike the very tender, succulant *ist series cuts. I was hoping this weakness of the K20D would be corrected with the new camera. Tell me please, did you need a steak knife to slice the K-7?

I don't think this is funny one bit. Somewhere a parent is missing their baby K7 and K20d. And you went and put them in an oven. Nice going, Hansel and/or Gretel. You kill some poor innocent wolf while you're at it?!?

The camera children! The camera children! Won't someone think about the camera children?!?!?

Where is the outrage? Where is Al Sharpton? Or Al Bundy? Or Senator Al Franken? Or maybe Frankenstein? Where I ask, where?!?

sedagive?!?!?
