Pros: Almost everything

Cons: Noise above ISO 800-1600

Opinion: What can I say, it's a machine a few years ago but if the plays big with the entry level and current semipro of other brands. The body is content, but really solid and ergonomics is magnificent, tropicalization really good, Shutter durability 100,000 scatti.rnScatto to 5.2 fps and fast autofocus that does not miss a photo (except in very bad light conditions), segment simple video but really good with the possibility to connect an external microphone, with the firmware update supports the SDXC (therefore without any capacity limit) and in fact "becomes" a K5.rnInsomma semipro a great car but in fact professional, robust and reliable, with so many features but at the same time easy to use and hold in your hand is spectacular. The only drawback is the noise above ISO 800, but usable up to ISO 1600-2000, affordable prices in used (200-300 EUR), absolutely recommended for those looking for a pro SLR, economic and still relevant.

Pros: Tank of robustness, reliability in all conditions, dynamic range, color, sharpness, stability, weather sealing, body beauty, 100,000 guaranteed shots from the house.

Cons: Not having, over ISO 2000/2500, one begins to feel the sensor ages.

Opinion: An exceptional machine, high-quality, either constructive or in terms of yield and performance. The files are exciting, faithfulness, balance, dynamic range, color rendering, a paradise. The price is now second-abbordabilissimo but it is difficult to find, because those who have it, hardly sells.

Pros: Strong structure. I drop the bag on the tiles with attached 17-70mm which is not a lightweight. Yet it has not suffered any damage. He had only moved the memory card that I removed and reinserted and the camera continues to operate in meraviglia.rnNel white balance manually, to me, is more accurate than the K5. It 'was the first SLR in history to take HDR directly on camera.rn

Cons: He feels the weight of years and the sensor Samsung, outstanding up to ISO 400, the noise shows already after the 600-800 ISO.

Opinion: It 'was my first DSLR bought especially given the opportunity to continue to use the old lenses without electrical contacts and no autofocus. With the beep / visual K7 you can focuse on hand and be sure to be in focus when you turn on the LED confirmation. In manual mode, pressing the lever over the ignition ON position appears as if the light meter in the viewfinder to the camera as if it were a reflex pellicola.rnIl optical stabilization system works perfectly well on the old obsolete optics with screw. Obviously adapter K.rnE 'small but ergonomic grip makes it feel like an extension of your arm. What else: when you exit the market had superior performance to a direct competitor D90. On the used market is not he who bought it does not follow trends and prefers to keep it. Coupled to 70mm telephoto portrait I used with this light at full aperture and 1/20 "freehand providing photos to say the least eccezionali.rnUn last thing: tofference of other cameras of the same level of competition that do not have it anymore, still has the connection for the flash studio.rn

Pros: tropical conditions at the time of this writing also economic, good quality of raw files, ergonomics spectacular

Cons: I've never liked the jpg products in the room, exposure and white balance a bit 'rough

Opinion: The k7 was my first digital SLR, bought also and especially for the feature to be compatible with all Pentax lenses produced in the last 50 anni.rnErgonomia: ergonomics is the strength of k7, which is held in the hand really fine. To operate using only his right hand, most of the controls is to "click" and the functions are well collected in menurnQualità photo: Raw of the k7 are excellent up to ISO 400-640, good up to 1250, all in all negotiable to 1600. Apart from the fact you do not go. Once properly balanced white, and with software "suitable" (sylkipix, Photivo, Darktable are the ones I've tried), it has a very good color rendering. At higher sensitivity increases noise and you have to "pump" a bit 'on the contrast colors. The meter is put into difficulty in the scenes more "complex" approach in general has a "conservative" so it tends to underexpose by a 2/3 stop. There is a clear influence of light quality on the reading of focus, but egr &ave; You can fine-tune virtually all lenses mounted, with the ability to store the information for the purposes autofocus.rnValore at the time the k7 can be worth maybe 250-300 Euros, a price much lower (even compared to cameras less "performance" as the Nikon D90). On the other hand it is difficult to find k7 used, because it is not a camera that has been very successful from the business point of view.

Pros: sturdy construction, tropicalization excellent opportunity to custom settings, intuitive controls, simple menu and very wide possibility of using old lenses, battery life, color rendering, the battery grip makes it much more manageable and doubles the battery capacity.

Cons: sensor noisy above 800 ISO, autofocus in low light uncertain.

Opinion: Just picked it up I'm loving it, the first click the link has become even more solid. Certainly it has some small defect, as the sensor a bit noisy above 800 ISO and a slight tendency to over-exposure, but with the necessary precautions is a machine that does not miss a shot. The adjustment possibilities allow to use it for any use and in any condition. The use often with a Falsh Metz 52 AF-1 TTL mode in the shots where light is scarce and not mistake mai.rnL'autofocus together, as mentioned in the "against" sometimes turns out to be a little undecided with low light. On the other hand, with sufficient light it is difficult to mistake. Even with moving subjects performs well if set in continuous autofocus. RNLA dynamic range is surprising and color gradients that fascinate cleaning. The increasing use in manual mode. RAW files are impeccable. The comparison with machines even more famous is embarrassing for these ultime, considering the prices of acquisto.rnSono impatient to move on to a full-frame ... but I'll wait to come out a model Pentax!
