Ok, K7D the May 21th!



Taken from russian forum (

UPDATE: quesabesde confirms OUR specs!

The k7d will land on earth May 21th!!!

There are many forum discussions around so it is quiet difficoult to have a good overview over the specs.

But for sure the price will be something between 1.200-1.500 Euro. The camera will have video recording. You can use the new DA* lenses. There is a new Auftofocussytem. 100% viewfinder, kind-of-metal-housing, hd-videomode, better, faster and more accurate af, 5-6fps, many little changes in order to improve ergonomy…”

French magazine “Réponses Photo” confirms new Pentax DSLR release for may.

A poster in a pentax forum writes “pentax is late comapring to canikon so this new item would be a DSLR that will “jump” a generation and will bring something new”

Then DA* 60-250 launch date is 24th of April!!!

There seems to be a Microphone hole opening on the head of the camera in front of the Hotshoe, which implies it is a video capable DSLR!

UPDATE: This are the probable specs:

– 100 % viewfinder
– Better weatherproofing

      I thought it is a important news for everybody. But may it is to present in the website, to many pictures. So next time I will keep the news short!
      A second problem was that a lot of websites made a link to this article so that I had the pressure to keep it updatet.
      To be honest, today there is no news in Olympus and Panasonic world. But in two weeks you will see a lot of Olympus fireworks on this website ;)
