You are comparing apples to UFO's... there is nothing remotely similar about the camera settings, lenses used, lighting used, people used, composition or pose. Never judge a camera by some random persons photos taken by that camera. If you truly want an accurate portrayal without doing your own perfect side by side test then check DXO's charts only at the screen setting and not the print setting. that will give you a pixel for pixel difference between the 2 cameras. Print will give you a perceptual difference which can be misleading.

for a start... Check SNR, DR, Tonal Range and Colour Sensitivity at the screen setting, that will give you a good idea as to what changed between the K-7 and the modern 24mp sensors, not perfect as the K-3 hasn't been DXO'd yet.
