Picked up the K-7 at the Samy's event two weeks ago and barely even touched it to really have an opinion. But what I can say is I am excited about upgrading from my k100d. Straight out of the box, the K-7's size is perfect for me, AF, AWB and quieter shutter are nice improvements.

Instead of using the provided strap, I used the strap from my Pentax zx-7 which allows me to store an extra card and cover for the OVF. I'm hoping a remote can fit it in there.

For my first pic, a can of oatmeal was nearby and I shot it. Unfortunately, I can't get the pic to upload. But this link might work: http://i398.photobucket.com/albums/p...a/IMGP0001.jpg

I think you will have your nose stuck in the manual for a while.

I found the best thing is to go out and take a lot of pictures and then go back into the manual when you encounter a problem.

The K7 is a long leap from the K100. I am still not entirely comfortable with it but I think I am gaining on it day by day. Some days I miss my K100 but I know that in time the K7 will be just as comfortable and give me all the benefits that come from this fine camera.

Glad you bought at Samys - maybe they'll continue to carry Pentax for a while. I went to the downtown store for the first time at the event and was impressed with the size. I want to return and see about getting a Hoya P72 filter - they were busy when I was there so I didn't bother them. It's nice to see someone in SoCal carrying Pentax again.

Congratulations on your new equipment - and looking forward to seeing more of your great photos with it!
By the way, just to show my ignorance, what is a "Lomo?"

Mole, Lomographic (Lomo) cameras are strange quirky film cameras (some with sharp lenses) that intentionally allow vignetting, light leaks, instense colors, multi-exposures onto film. Funny stuff you're not supposed to want on your pics.

They attracted me, because in the first days of digital, I stayed loyal to film and the Lomo's gave me easy solutions for imperfect photos with fun effects.

Which is why I've been playing around with the filters on the K-7 and my W80.
