Hello from Pentax fan from Japan.

Thanks for letting me join. I have been a fan of Pentax DSLRs since I bought my first Pentax DSLR (*ist DS) back in 2005. Since then, I have always liked Pentax. I'm looking forward to getting the Pentax K-7 in the future. I did a little hands on in a camera store here in Japan, and it is a very nice camera. What is so cool about Pentax is they give you so much camera in a smaller body. I'm really not loyal to any brand. I currently shoot a Olympus E-300 and a Canon EOS 50D. Looking forward to adding the K-7 in the future.

Take Care and May God Bless!

Ed

I'm looking forward to getting the K7 myself one day.

Canon 50D is quite a capable camera no..? Not to put you off Pentax, but can I ask why you are getting a K7 also?

Oh, and welcome to the forum Ed

The size is convenient and it is weather resistant. Plus I just love Pentax DSLRs. Besides this camera is built like a tank. The price is very reasonable for what you get. I could just go on and on.

Take Care and May God Bless!

Thank you for the kind words. I see you own the K20D. I have a question. Here in Japan The K20D brand new with camera case is about $700.00 (Due to the release of the K-7). How much different is the K20D from the K-7 when it comes to performance. The cheaper price seems too good to pass up.

I don't have a K7 (just a K20D and a K200D), but from what I've read most people who have upgraded feel it was worth it. Pentax AF has been a bit worse than major brands and that seems to have gotten a lot better. IQ-wise there doesn't seem to be such a major difference.
