I love, love, LOVE the specs on this camera... I knew this was going to happen. I finally decided on a camera to buy and they come out with a newer, better-featured one. Happens to everyone, though, I suppose.
I came so close to buying the K20D because of it's handling, mp, and extra features, but I chose not to because I couldn't get used to the bulk and the heft of the grip. Looks like Pentax has taken care of that with the K-7. And weather-sealed kit lenses!!!! And faster continuous shooting! And a new processor! And a new AF system! Frequenty-used features accessible without delving into menus! Dedicated AF-assist lamp! GGGAHH!
*sigh* I suppose I just have to hope that they continue with this higher quality, prosumer line so that by the time I'm ready (and financially able
) to upgrade, I can get my hands something similar. The K-8? K-9? K-X? Maybe they'll start making all their lenses weather-sealed, as well. I'd love to have the sealing on my 55-300mm.
I want one!
