Re: This review was fine. Give this guy a break.

His other main complaint is the price point. The Price should be more
in line with the Nikon D90 which is the true competition for this

Not true, the K-7 is a higher spec camera than the D90: (...) The K-7 is
more of a competitor to the D300 and Canon 50D. Pentax doesn't really
have a direct competitor to the D90.

Sorry to desagree but to someone looking for a first camera the k-7
competes with the D90.
The D300 is a lot bigger and bigger means better to a lot of people.
Of course that specs wise it is more like the d300 but with movies.

Someone looking for a 'first camera' is not the target market of the K-7, that's what we call 'entry-level' and the K-7 is not an entry-level product. The K-7 has dual control wheels and lots of exterior controls and options for advanced photographers and professionals. I agree that the D90 has more appeal to the entry level market. The K-7 is way too much camera for a beginner.
