Another Aussie K-7 user

Another Aussie K-7 user reporting in - arrived a few hours ago so still charging the battery

Upgraded from K200D skipping the K20D. Love the body size and weight. Can't wait to get shooting.









So how's battery life for you K-7 guys ?

awaiting for your k-7 overclocking results..

what croc said, liveview sucks the battery dry.. quick as!

will definitely purchase a batter grip and third party battery once the price settles down.

Lucky bugger.

Where did you pick the FA 35 up from, out of curiosity. They are hard to come by nowadays.

Hoping close to my K200D with 4x AA 2700mah Powerex get 1000-1300 photos per charge (40-60% flash used).

Swine flu takes longer than a week to get over

Welcome to the Aussie K-7 owner group eva2000.. I am sure you will enjoy it.

The battery is great... as long as Video and live view are not used

Talk about being sick - got the flu myself right now. Was really bad last week but getting better now - just in time for some K-7 action

Neil from Melbourne - sounds so familiar - Neil Creek that you ? Fellow anime fan ?

Just tried my Sigma EF-530 DG Super flash on K-7 works fine as well yay!
