K7, Sigma APO 70-200 APOmm F2.8 EX DG

Obviously suggesting that a photo is not wanted!

What were your settings for this photo? Just a little intrigued by how clean it is.
Was it post-processed at all?

Thanks!

The K7 had the same innards as the K20 (notably a Samsung 14,6 Mpx sensor) but started a new tradition of better streamlined camera bodies, persisting to this day. The Samsung's blue rendering was a little "too blue", the other colors were O.K.

The K-7 does one thing better than any other Pentax DSLR. That is continuous shooting in low speed. It has the fastest low speed, 3.3 fps - a couple of others do 3fps. Shooting JPEGs, it can fill the card at that speed, only a couple of other cameras can do that. It can also use SDXC cards which means the card can have a lot of capacity.

My K7 crapped out on me before 100,000 shutter count. If I remember it was only in the high 80,000. My first K10 made it just beyond 100,000.
I do agree that the K7 resolved some images through some lenses better than the K10. I could see an improvement in some lenses with the K7 while others seem nice with the K10.
I remember when I started using the digital filters built in the software of the K7. I really liked the instant, in camera treatments with the monochrome "infrared" filter and the filter to remove certain colors from the image. I don't like to fuss with images a lot in post production flow so the in camera filters were fun sometimes for instant gratification.
Today, I do own a K5 but I do have fond memories of using a K7.

Great shots here! Love the portraits.
I'm always surprised on how naturally detailed and naturally colourful K7 output is. Here's two street/urban architectural shots with DA 16-45/4 attached - 16/10.

The K20d blues weren't like this... The K7 had a different version of the sensor, it was modified for video.
