We all have different preferences. And no matter how Pentax do, some will complain.

And frankly - this does not seem like the most important thing to need.

I am 100% sure that you that have the K-5 would never ever even think about it being any wrong if you gave not used a K-7 before.

All this said, I can give you three motivations why I turn it off on both K-5 and K-7.

  1. The image gets by far to small.

  2. The jumping around of the image disturbs me.

  3. I more often than not looks at review with the lens pointing down.

I can also give one more reason why I think Pentax made a good choice.

  1. It is not even a close to necessary feature.
