    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. Smile

    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.
