    aiyo ... I like my k20d too, but have to admit that k-7 is obviously a notch better (as a tool).

    Good design doesn't mean good engineering.

    But I, and many others, don't have a problem with that.

    It's possible yours is a (very) minority opinion? (ie. that the VF LED read-outs are not good enough).

    Mmm. I think good design here means user-friendly and pleasing to the senses (visual, tactile), which may or may not necessarily involve good engineering.
