Re: Is Pentax at IFA

A bit sad as I like the K20D far more than I do the K7. The K20D size and layout is as near to perfect (IMO) as I can imagine. I really do not at all like the changes to the layout and interface on the K7. The lack of a SR switch was the deal killer for me. The K7 feels more like an enhanced K-m than a upgrade to the K20D in my opinion and I have no plans to buy the K7 at all due to the interface.

The K-7 aims at a higher market segment than the K20D.

Pentax are working on a K200D replacement, not K20D replacement, and this will be a sort of "baby K-7" to be released later this year - in time for the winter shopping.
