Nabbed me a new K7 on Amazon

Not sure if this is worthy of a new thread......but......I bought a new K7 on Amazon yesterday.

I imagine the price eventually will go lower, but as others have said with the dollar—who knows. Plus, the price is good and electronics almost always go down in price. If you wait and complain you will never enjoy things.

Anyway, I got it to have a second/backup to my k20d, but I hope to use both and also that my wife will use the k20d (I am trying to get her into this with me). Of course, she will probably want the K7!

I am lucky as my wifey is happy with the ist DL and leaves me the K20D. Now we might have an issue with the new Sigma 100-300. I am hoping she will think its too heavy !!!!!
Good luck with the new toy.

Hi all:

It arrived yesterday and seems fine. A bit different control-wise, but fairly easy to use.

I really hope the AF in low light is better. I really like my k20d, but find I lose, it seems, a fair number of shots in my home studio because I can't get the k20d to focus fast enough--lots of hunting.

Anyway, thanx.
