Well I just got my new K7 about 2 hours ago.
I went to a local camera shop in Protland Oregon and walked out with a nice new K7.
To make a long story shot. About two weeks ago I got a new K2000 with the two lens kit. I really liked it not a bad camera. But I wanted live view and even the video on the K7 is nice. Also I wanted manual AF points and haveing a CMOS sensor. And the weaher sealing is nice. So I was able to return my K2000 with no problems. I was thinking about just buying a K-X when they come out. But the K-X doen't have the weather sealing and I wish Pentax would have put the lighted AF points in the VF. I could have been ok with the K-X but the one I wanted would cost me $850. And on top of that having a K110 and a K1000 with 4 pentax lenses the only lense I would want is the 55-300mm.
I think I will really like the K7. I have only taken one picture with it so far I'm waiting for the battery to charge.
This is my first real pro like DSLR. I have had a Cannon XSI, Sony Alpha 350, Nikon D60, Pentax K2000 and now the Pentax K7. When I got my XSI canon over a year ago. At that time I really wanted a K200D Pentax but no local stores had them. My dad has an old K1000 and the K110 with four lenses that I can just use those lenses when I want.
So now I think I will be buying an extra battery pack and maybe the battery grip.
I did notice on ebay I saw some replacement battery packs that were really cheap from stores in China. Are these safe to buy I kinda feel that might not be the way to go. Anyone bought any of these from out of China on Ebay?
