Editor's Review

[Read our full Pentax K-7 review] The K-7 was Pentax's leading pro-sumer model for some time, though it's been replaced by the K-5. It's still worth a look if you can find it for a good price; while the feature set is on the light side compared to what's available on similarly priced cameras, the image quality is excellent. Here's what we said about it in 2010:

The K-7 been extremely popular with enthusiasts and serious amateurs since its release. Longtime Pentax users praise it as the Pentax they've always wanted, while recent Pentax converts are happy they chose the K-7 over similar Nikon or Canon models. Designed as a sleek update of the popular K20D, it features improvements including 720p HD video, a 3.0-inch live view LCD display, a PRIME II image processor, and improved dust proofing, while retaining amenities like the 14.6 megapixel CMOS sensor and shake reduction. It's a little bit more expensive than the Canon 50D or Nikon D90, but it has the specs and attitude to back up the price tag.
