K7 vs new canon 7D 18mp (That was fast too!)

hmmm. What lenses were used in this? Remember that canon has pre-production firmware yet, so you cant compare them yet. I saw few photos taken on high iso, and they were like K-7 or worse. :hmm:

Canon really need to learn from nikon. Nikon wont battle with megapixels, they build good, fast and user-friendly cameras. And also they are brilliant in high iso pics.
(nikon just dont have limited lenses at theis production:o)

But im good with my K-7. Its good and has same features than D300/D300s and at lower price! :D I just want more lenses now! (just bought Pentax M 50mm/1,7) Arriving today...

Tests like these really spoils Pentax name. Beginners and others think that pentax is one bad and crappy camera wich has no lenses!
But i love pentax and i feel happy i shoot with it. :D

Yep. Thats not new to me. i read "digi-kuva" magazine in here finland, and i saw macro lense test in headlines. I was so excited that how will pentax do in it.

So, every brand (canon, nikon, olympus, pentax and sony) had 2 lenses in test.
BUT with pentax, there were NO pentax brand lenses, only sigma and tamron!! (well, there was sigma with olympus and sony too, but at least they had 1 own brand macro in test.:hmm:

They said that pentax doesnt have new macros imported to finland anymore?!?!? I was like what the h*ll!! Even in helsinki, theres 3 shops that sell NEW pentax dfa 100mm/2,8macro and of course 35mm/2,8 macro Limited!
:eek::eek::eek:
Well, guess am i ordering that magazine anymore.. I just hate that magazines like that, allways praise nikon or canon. And in tests they compare for ex. pentax lens worth of 700 € to canonīs Lseries lense worth of 1700€! :mad:

(ps. funniest test in that magazine was fullframe-camera body test. There was Canon 5dmkII, Nikon D700, Sony A900 and Olympus E3!!!! Oh man i laughed! Guess did olympus beat those? Awesome body BUT way in wrong test.:fedup:)
Real proīs those guys.


Do you get what i mean? Have someone else seen tests like that?

Yea. My sigma is even better than pentax 12-24mm. That doesnt look normal at all.
And all revies what i have seen, claims that sigma has great flare control, even better that nikon 12-24mm and canonīs 10-20mm.

Sony is very interesting brand and those a900 and a850 are VERY nice and sexy cameras.
BUT, those lenses are soooo expencive!! You have to buy Zeiss lenses for them, becouse otherwise itīs waste of full frame and those pixels if you shoot with some 300 € zoom lense..
And Zeiss is good but expencive. I would have to pay 3200€ to get both camera and Zeiss...


Thank god i have pentax and pentax ltd-lenses! :lol:

Decided to choose Lenses over K7 Body...
Posted By pexi85
Replies: 19
Views: 5,602
If i could chose, i would pick:

-FA 31mm f1.8 ltd

and some macro (you told that you do abstract shots)

-Sigma 70mm f2,8 macro (good focal length for street/portraits also)

reason why i picked sigma is, that itīs perfect for portraits and you get superb macro-lense at same time. Also you can start to take macroīs now...


(fa 77mm 1,8 ltd is great, but itīs too close for youīre 50mm)

I like for some reason more of Sigma. I sold mine pentax 12-24mm last week and bought sigma.
i really like that 2mm wider, and i have kit lenso so i dont need that longer reach.

Optically those both are great,
sigma has better flare resistant, more accurate fokus and better build quality
when
Pentax has better kontrast and slightly better colours


i think its hard choise, but i have made my own and i really love sigma. i payed from mine only 399 €, so it was really cheap.


after all, if i were you, i would choose lense, wich has better zoom range for youīre shootings

Guys, look at review here. They claim that sigma 70mm has bigger magnification ratio than 1:1.


They say: "Finally, at the close-focusing distance of 10 inches, the maximum magnification ratio came in at 1:0.91 -- significantly greater than Sigma's 1:1 claim."
