    But FW has been playing with his pre-release sample. I think the rest are definitely more eager than him. Ha.

    Go for lens! You can always get the k7 a year or so later at ard 1k (experience from the k20d) but that will not be true for your lens.

    The noise issue is getting a lot of attention there (and it seems a lot of pentax user to non-pentax usr bashing )

    It's not an issue. Just have to understand Pentax doesn't do noise reduction by default. The camera has the adjustable noise reduction so you have full control.

    Just wait for a couple of more days so we can see how good/bad the retail camera works on high and low ISO But to be honest, it's still an APSC camera, we can't expect dramatic improvement over K20D on high ISO performance. If high ISO noise control is the priority here, better get a full frame camera.

    I wouldnt be surprised.

    hopefully they took their time with fine tuning the beta firmware adjusted with feedback from the community. i really hate rushed firmware.

    Now thats its out, there will be people who will scrutinize the camera with surgical precision. Since hardware changes is out of the question, their software side should be on standby for queries by the users.

    *did they mention any changes from beta to released firmware?

    k20d ISO at 1250 was very good with flash yesterday BBQ tested it... quite clean ..but declining towards 1600.

    K7 should be slightly or much better ..I guessed
