"(Ever see people in a stadium trying to use flash photography? How much effect do you think their flashguns will have?? Absolutely zero.)"

I'm sorry Matt, but I have to disagree. Anyone using their flash in a stadium knows they will get a brightly lit shot of the back of at least one persons head in the bottom third of the frame.
K20D and a substantial user manual to wade through

Matt,
now that we know the K7 spec, are you able to speculate how the K7 might handle flash?

Neil - no.
My e-book took ages to sort out! You'll notice that much of it isn't even in the manual, let alone the specification!

Still, if anyone wants me to add the K7D to the e-book, I'm happy to do that if they can loan me the K7 Any takers?
