PhotographyBLOG has posted a review of the Pentax K-7.

Pentax are onto a winner with the K-7, especially if the sensor change in the final, final version improves the noise levels at the higher ISO speeds.

Amateur Photographer dropped the word today that Pentax is modifying the sensor of the Pentax K-7 prior to its production release.  I guess all those “reviews” and “previews” on the topic of image quality just became moot  (or, “moo” as Joey would say).

Wired has posted a review of the Pentax K-7.

It’s svelte, sturdy, fairly easy to operate, has a great range of available lenses and a feature set that’s unmatched at this price. Think of it as a solid double with an RBI.
