Pentax K7: Making of, reviews, and more
It's been a while since we had a proper Pentax K7 round-up, so it is time to catch up with some of the latest happenings! With more manufacturers announcing new DSLRs that fit the traditional mold - size/weight being directly proportional to advanced features, the Pentax K-7 appears to be catching its second wind.
Making of the Pentax K-7
OK 1000 has a new series of articles featuring write-ups from Pentax Japan employees who were involved with the design of the K7. The first article features the commentary of a product designer, and the second article features a user interface designer.
Pentax K-7 Reviews
Two of the review mega-sites have the K7 in the pipeline. Simon Joinson mentioned in the dpreview forums that their K-7 review is coming up, while DC Resource has just posted sample pictures, with a review being the next one in their schedule!
Meanwhile, at The Online Photographer, Gordon Lewis [blog] is posting a three-part review of the Pentax K-7. Already review part #1 and part #2 are posted! The exciting conclusion (which will include ISO and IQ talk) is coming up in the next few days!
And in the forums, a review in a Dutch magazine is discussed.
For previous reviews, be sure to check the DSLR Review Organizer.
If you are curious about the camera, or already have it, Yvon Bourque's e-book is out, and he is offering a 75-page PDF sample. Page #2 has its own color-selector, but unlike the K-x, in this case, it is a chapter selector :) It turned out to be a prophetic chapter-color-selector!
And if you feel like pixel-peeping, Foto Actualidad points to an ISO comparison between it and the Canon 7D. The battle of the 7s!
