Hi everyone, I just posted a comment in the Pentax forum but thought I'd open it up to a wider audience for a different perspective. I'm planning a comparison test involving the K-7 and was thinking of a head to head with one other or maybe two others. I have the Olympus E-30 in mind, do you think this is fair given the sensors?
If you were in the market for a DSLR at the K-7 level and had no company bias or loyalty, which other models would you be looking at with the K-7?
Thanks in advance.

Morning Matt, just finished reading a recent AP comparison of the K-7 vs canon 7D, could be interesting to see how you rate them?
The Pentax K-7 is in a bit of a No Mans Land. I don't think the magazines know what to pitch it against. At the moment it's price seems to be falling quite rapidly. Looking around it can be bought body only for about £800. That puts it in roughly the same bracket as the Canon 50D, about £700, or the Nikon D90, about £600. It can be argued the Pentax is in a higher class than those two very capable cameras.
However the K-7 usually gets tested alongside the Canon 7D, about £1200 body only, or the Nikon D300, about £1000. The Pentax holds its own against these two excellent cameras perhaps just losing out a little in the final score. The Pentax though is considerably cheaper! A bit of a quandry..!
How about the Nikon D90, the Olympus lacks video.
The thread earlier about the Samsung unreiable sensor on the K7 turned me off on the camera. I was seriously interested.

The D90, the equivalent Sony, the Canon 500D, 450D.
