Pentax K7 vs Canon T2i(550D)

Hello Guys,
I am dying to buy a Pentax K7, but there is something about Canon T2i which is attracting me, may be "Full HD" recording and also 18MP.
But, K7 has great body type and WR. I am so confused here.
Which one has an edge over other?

i say the K7 just cause the built quality is times better. megapixels doesn't matter anymore. i think the best pro-camera you can buy today is the D3s, and that only has 12.1 megapixels.

Besides, it only means the files will be much bigger without any real advantage.

However, I think the sensor on the T2i is slightly better, but I would get the K7 due to its built quality and overall features.

They are quite different cameras, targeted at different people. There have been several threads on this subject recently. I personally think that the biggest benefit to the T2i over the K7 is in the video department, although if video is really your goal, you should probably invest in a dedicated camcorder which does HD. The other benefits are more megapixels (if you consider that a benefit) and faster auto focus.

The K7 is actually closer in most of its specs to the 7D, however in price it is closer to the T2i.

Depends what you want really, what you place more emphasis on when taking pictures or movies.
