The K-7 is way faster than the K20D with better autofocus in low light, the K-7 also has much better auto white balance, ambient light metering and P-TTL flash metering. The SR system is more secure, the anti dust function much improved, the viewfinder has 100% coverage, the body is of higher quality, the sealings now also works in cold climate, the back LCD is much improved, and the feature set is richer and extended compared to the K-20. Faster shutter, faster continous shooting and so on. So I fail to see how the K-7 is not a more advanced and much improved camera in all areas compared to the K20D.

User interface of the K-7 is very smilar to the K20D, just a few buttons that got new places to be more ergonomical friendly, and since most people never found out that they could press the OK-button plus front dial to change ISO, the K-7 now has a separate ISO button. Other than that, the K-7 is very similar.

Oh, the K-7 has some surprises to info-mode in Playback, it is a fast and easy way to change many parameters without digging deep in the menues and it is graphically more friendly to the eye than the standard menu. This is one of the K-7's many hidden gems to the user interface.

Have to agree with everything you have said Roland, it is a superior camera in every way.
