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.

If someone is looking for a 'first camera' and happens to go to 'compare products' of the reviewers site would prefer to buy (based on rating) just about ANY Canon or Nikon before the K7...lol!

Constructive criticisms can be free lessons.
I welcome and appreciate them.
