Why K7 owners the happiest???
Mar 14, 2010

I am upgrading to a new DSLR and found that the happiest owners opinions in the "Read owners opinions" belong to the Pentax K7 owners! Very Interesting also because I am selecting my upgrade DSLR reading through mane candidate cameras. The K7 is one of them. It seems that noise at the high ISO (shown in the dpreview review results - noise for RAW) not disturbing for K7 users or just ignored (?)
Please, enlighten me. I stil have my Pentax ME Super with two lenses

I like K7, size, functionality, ergonomics and the rest except nose level (black, gray) at high ISOs. I have never tried K7 and like/not like mole academic like pased on reviews an test images. Not that many stores offer K7.

The candidate cameras should

Print size:

Printable image as 13x19 or larger up to ISO 400 and may be 800 (for club competition)
Printable image as 11x14 at ISO 800 and may be 1600 (for club competition)

In body IS
AF Micro-adjust

Ergonomics (I photograph RAW)
Usable for MF viewfinder
Easy access to ISO
Exposure metering
Exposure compensation

The other two candidates are Olympus E-30/E-620, which are shown noise at ISO 200 and 400 the higher the more .... or just Canon (whatever).
