We've just received our production-level Pentax K-7 digital SLR, and have posted the first set of K-7 test shots right away for you to see.
The feature-packed Pentax K7 offers quite a few improvements over its predecessor, the K20D. Burst speed has improved to over five frames per second, and the K-7 includes both a new 77-segment metering system, and an upgraded sensor shift mechanism. The dust reduction system is now a piezo-ceramic type, and the top shutter speed has been increased to 1/8000 second. There are improvements to both the Pentax K7's viewfinder magnification and accuracy, as well as to its LCD display size and resolution. That's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to enhancements, though.
See our Pentax K-7 Hands-on Preview for more details, and the K7 samples page for the test shots taken so far, including links to select RAW files. Stay tuned for more test shots to come over the coming days!
