Hi from Mumbai

Hey all. I'm Bhairav from Mumbai, India.
Have used my dad's old Asahi Pentax SLR a lot, and am planning to take the plunge into the wide, wonderful world of DSLRs. Currently trying to make up my mind between the K-x and the K7.

Dad has 4 lenses for his camera,listed below:

Pentax Lens Review and Specification Database - 50mm F1.4 Third-Party Pentax Lens Review Database - 105mm f2.5 Macro
Pentax Lens Review and Specification Database - 35mm F2

and a 75-150mm Albinar lens.

Looking forward to being a part of these forums, long time lurker, first time poster!

Welcome to the form Bhairav.
The K-7 is an excellent choice (although so is the K-x) and would do very well with metering your older lenses.
Hope you enjoy your time here.

Welcome to this forum,
I hope you will enjoy it!

In December I had the same dilemma.
In the end I decided to go for the K-7 (weather resistant).
But both are very nice!

Welcome Bhairav, I hope you enjoy this forum. And good luck with your choice (I'd choose a K-7, for the same reason Iris is mentioning!)

Hi Bhairav.

Welcome to pentax forums. This is a great site to discuss equipment, technique etc.

As commenetd already, you have some good lenses already. K7, being waetherproof etc will be a good buy. So will be a KX. Do share your images with us once you take the plunge.
