Pentax K-7 for $550

Hi Guys,

I found a Pentax K-7 for $550 in excellent condition. Is this a good price for the camera? Would it be better to pick this up or the K-R? I like a more professional feeling body, but I also realize that the K-R has better high-ISO performance.

Thanks

There's absolutely nothing wrong with the K7 - it's a great camera and easily one of the best buys of my life. However, if you see the post about the K5 being under $1000 now, it may be worth the stretch to get that? Or you could argue for a cheaper price on the second hand k7 given the k5's price new.

That's a little cheaper than normal, but not too much cheaper than the current average used K-7 price.

I've been extremely happy with my K7. If you do a lot of low light photography you may want to spring for a K5 or wait for the next gen to come out.

If you are comparing it with k-r, not only at high-iso, you will even feel difference at lower ISO (say 400) and certainly a better dynamic range. Having said that, K-7 is an excellent camera for that price.
