Pentax K7 is really good

just got my K7 today with 16-50mm lens. I am pretty with it. I used canon 400d and nikon d200 before this. however, I think K7 is really what I need. I am really impressive.


However, I think K7 is a little bit small for my hand, and looks not so professional.

I think I need to get a grip for it.

Welcome Nicky and congrats on the K-7, but 'not so professional'?!?
I'm sure you're referring to the bigger = more professional stereotype of photographic gear...
Sure, get yourself the grip, and if you really want, go for some monster lenses - but that's not what Pentax prides itself for.
Enjoy.

Professional looking...be more concerned about your photos being professional looking rather than the tool you use to create that.

Have you thought about that being working to your advantage... you don't want to look like professional until you are. I have seen too many people having (for example, D700 and 24-70mm 2.8) as heavy necklace only for bragging rights. You can also judge by the way they hold the camera.
