    Wow. Just wow. Just some thoughts...

    - Punchy colours (Is red still a problem?)
    - Tungsten correction (Does it work with JPEG?)
    - Distortion correction (UWA, here I come!)
    - CA correction (Only for DA?)
    - Level adjustment (Corrects up to ?% tilt?)

    I'm assuming all of these are selectable in the menu?

    Then again, reality prohibits me from indulging in this little wonder.
    Brand loyalty? Pffttt...| Got Flickr?
    I shoot JPEG (got a problem with that?)

    I dont see any problem w/ red color, yet.
    Tungsten correction works for both RAW and JPG, but I guess you got a lot more to play w/ RAW
    CA and distortion correction only work for DA lenses
    I haven't tried level adjustment, but by paper it says only within 1 degree, and this isn't selectable, it's done automatically.

    CA and distoration correction are selectable in menu, Tungsten AWB correction has two levels to select too.

    Welcome to the would-be-K-7 users' club!

    What I think: Given a choice of better lens or better body, the lens should come first. This applies especially to those who're just starting out taking photography seriously. And also because usually we only have budget for either body or lens upgrade at a time, not both. And that's what I've been doing the past year.

    Anyway, I guess most of us here already have good lenses, so it's a toss-up between getting a body to match the lenses (if one has a not-so-good body) or getting even better lenses. The quest for photographic (equipment) perfection knows no boundaries, haha!
