I think it's a fair review

"By now, it is clear that the K-7 is a well thought-out DSLR with priority given to direct access to common functions. At the same time, the Pentax K-7 has an unprecedented level of customization available."

Hopefully the firmware update will help this....

"Focusing is fast and accurate, but not top-of-class. The fastest focusing camera tested here to date, the Sony Alpha A700 which focuses nearly instantly while the K-7 has a short-but-noticeable focus-lag. Continuous AF is not stellar either, with most high-end DSLR cameras being able to keep up with a moving subject better than the K-7."


The Pentax K-7 is a DSLR with an incredible feature-set, no other camera does everything this one does. Its wealth of features, many of them unique or uncommon, helps users take better pictures. "

There's another thread on this already. Maybe a merger is in order?

Thanks for the link
The K7 seems to be a very good alternative of the other knows brand, Canon, Nikon, etc and with the Limited lens no other alternative, Canon, Nikon and Sony don't has this ones.
