    New Pentax K-7 in silver

    One of the prettier DSLRs in a long time:

    K-7 is a magnesium body, so not sure if silver is all plastic clad to magnesium body

    Personally I think FF would be a natural step for Pentax if the new MF gains a foothold and thus strengthens the brand name. Pentax has an excellent series of FF primes already.

    YES THEY DO...... WHY?..... They have no FF DSLRs....They don't make a FF film anymore.
    There MUST be a FF getting ready for the next cycle.....,, Sony has 2 FF, Canon has 2, Nikon has 2...Pentax (one of the oldest companies) has ZERO

    I'll have a used FF Leica M9 before a FF Pentax, which will require the sale of my all Pentax gear to help pay for it ....

    looks so awesome. I own a k-x and plan to buy a K-7. It seems so retro, and of totally my style. Is it only in Japan? How much does it cost anyway? it is 14.6-megapixel, 720-p-shooting camera drives me crazy so I request you guys to reply as soon as possible.

    I think it's Japan only, but there are a couple of companies in Japan that export to the west.
