It arrived!

After 2 weeks patiently waiting my K-7 arrived to Canada from Taiwan! Everything seems to be in order and tomorrow morning it will go for a test run to ensure all is well.
With 25,000 shutter actuations, the body is clean the sensor appears perfect and a 18-55mm WR kit lens I can finally go into the wilderness without worry.
My loved A33 choked in high humidity, cold weather the battery meter literally shrunk before my eyes and the kit lens jumped and skipped so using it for any video was awful.
I cannot believe the heft and solidity of the K-7. I bought it based on many reviews (and knowing it's shortcomings), and the extra weight of the steel body frame and magnesium body shell may mean I can hold longer shutter speeds as the A33 was wonderfull/too light. All tiny movements were bad shots in the end.
I have the Pentax 16-45mm zoom coming in a few days and I really look forward to the day I can proudly call myself a Pentaxian!
Loving this forum.

So impressed with it's simplicity! The DA* lens is amazing-ly light for some reason.
