I never knew the K-7 was able to bracket five shots - and at the flick of a button - very interesting! Thanks for the tip, it'll come in very handy.
At first, I really didn't mind menu diving with the K-x but after playing with the K20d, the front wheel grew on me and menu diving became not so fun. Hahah.
I was a bit afraid of the noise especially at 1600 iso on the K-7 but I really wouldn't mind PP the noise! (I must admit that with the K-x, I never had to use noise reduction.)
My mistake, i got mixed up with a K-5 I'd been using. You can't assign the RAW button to do bracketing like you can on the K-5. Hopefully Pentax can change that with a firmware update. Having a dedicated bracketing button is nice though and I don't understand why the K-7 doesn't have it when it was even featured on the old K10D. The K-7 can still do 5 shot bracketing though.

Anyhow, another feature I like on the K-7 that's not on the K-x is interval shooting. You can designate how many shots and how much time inbetween shots the camera will take. It's handy when you want to do a "photobooth" kinda shoot or even time lapse sequences.

K-7 does not have tethered computer remote control like my K20D did. Not a big deal if you don't shoot studio or with a setup.

I stand corrected - on another thread this guy has developed tethered shooting that works with the K7.

Thanks ManOf7! I see you've also been playing around with the software as well. I saw the post earlier on how it works with the k-x - and just when I sold my k-x!!! Was pretty upset about that. haahha Now all I can say is THIS IS AWESOME! and the program will most likely be improved - it's time to go purchase a K-5/K-7!

I know the K-7 is 50 grams less than the K20D - 750g vs. 800g. That's with battery and SD card. The K-x is 515g without battery and SD. How about the weight? - is the K-7 noticeably heavier compared to the K-x?

I don't own a k-x but since the k-7 is kinda weatherproof and the k-x isn't I expect it to be heavier, but I do have a k-7 and I'm happy to say that I have no problems whatsoever with the weight...

And I'm just a skinny lightweight kind guy so...
