Anyone else have difficulty the removing SD card from a K7?
I did initially, but just doesn't seem to be a problem any more. Not sure why, if it is because I adapted or the card pops up more making it easier to remove. Regardless, just not an issue any more.

Use the thumbnail indentation at the top of the card.

Sounds like the same issue as with the K200D. Every SD card I have bought has a thumbnail indentation at the top of the card on the label side. You have to train yourself to use your thumbnail to extract the card. Since being alerted to this in the DPReview Pentax forum, I have been able to successfully extract the cards without flipping them across the room.

Difficult? No.
Tricky? A little bit.
As someone above I grab it at the corners, not front/back.

Ha! That reminds me of an incident early in my digital photography days, when a 256MB SD card (expensive in those days) flipped out of my hands and slid under the skirting board to end up under the floorboards. Sometime in the future, archeologists will study my images to get an idea of what life was like in 2003.
