K-x vs K-7: What accounts for the price difference?

Exactly. Which is why I explained my purpose for creating this thread and my preference of what I would want from the camera I upgrade to.

Like I said: The video capability intrigues me and I have little use for the higher-end features. The only question really is if the improvement in IQ/VQ from the K-7 is significant enough to chose it over the K-x considering their difference in price...

I think it should be an issue neither of IQ Performance nor Money but both... Thus, it becomes an issue of price-for-performance otherwise known as "bang for the buck."

What do people mean when they say that 24fps is already film quality, though? Does this mean 30fps is better than film quality? In what way? Smoothness? Fluidity? Basically: what is the significance of the K-7 being 30fps to the K-x's 24fps?


Copy that. I understand that noise handling is only a part of what goes into excellent IQ. But considering the specs, it seems that the only IQ-related difference of the K-7 is the megapixels. What inference can we then draw regarding the IQ of the K-x vs the IQ of the K-7?


This brings me back to my point: All things considered, what can we deduce about how the IQ/VQ of the K-x will compare to the IQ/VQ of the K-7? My reason for asking is that I'm a marginally satisfied K100D user who is looking for a reasonable upgrade and these are the two bodies I'm considering. My focus is on the quality, not the high-end functions...

In terms of IQ, to what existing Pentax DSLR is the K-x comparable to? Like I've said, I'm currently using the K100D and I'm fairly satisfied. However, if I'm going to upgrade because I want the video function, I'd also prefer that the body I'll upgrade to takes significantly better photos as far as overall IQ is concerned.

Am I reading this right? The K-x supposedly handles high ISO noise better than the K-7?? And its 24fps might even be better than the K-7's 30fps???

So all things considered, the increased price of the K-7 has much more to do with its high-end features rather than its advantage in photo and video quality?

Are these correct? Because generally... I don't really care a lot of high-end features... what I want is quality: Image quality & Video quality. If these can be had with the K-x in the same way as the K-7, then I'm sold.

I'm currently using a K100D that I'm fairly satisfied with, and I'm excited for the creative possibilities that being able to take videos would open up. The videos I've seen from the K-7 have impressed me so far.

What would be so different with the K-x that it's significantly cheaper? Would the quality of the videos and photos be poorer? Are there basic essential features missing? What do you think about these two cameras in comparison?

The most intriguing aspect of these cameras for me is their capability to record HD video, but I'm not sure whether to jump on the K-7 right now or just wait for the cheaper K-x when it comes out.

Thanks :) My camera is a K100D.


Thanks :) I was actually thinking the same thing. A few days before the concert, I was taking some test shots with my camera and figured that I actually liked the effect of the noise as long as it doesn't go overboard. True enough, there were photos that worked really good with the moderate amount of noise that it had.

You're right though. The photo with the drummer is just too noisy.

Hi everyone! This is my first thread here on PentaxForums and I wanted to share this set. Hope you guys like it. Feel free to post comments or shoot questions or anything :)

I was in attendance for a concert of a local band and was around 12 rows away from the stage, which is around 10-15 meters. The venue was a closed, relatively small and intimate music hall with decent lighting... but I had to shoot at ISO1600 to get workable pics.

The lens I was using was a Jupiter-21M 200/4 M42 that was borrowed from a friend (although a couple of pics were taken with a 2x teleconverter). Since the audience is not around to roam around to take pics during the concert, I had to make do with what I could capture from my seat.

Here are the pics :)
