Good morning Guys,having looked at posts on here for a couple of weeks I have decided to get a K7 because of its weather sealing and compact size relative to immediate competition.
Plus you seem to be a very knowledgeable and friendly bunch of guys.
As my forum name may suggest I am a keen motorcyclist and will from time to time mount the K7 on my tank and take video footage.
I intend to buy K7 sometime in March and bother you guys with questions.
All the best for 2010.
Oh and my photography knowledge is definately beginner.But being semi retired I have a bit of time to climb a steep learning curve.

Welcome to the forum.

Having seen the weather you've had recently, weather sealing would seem to be a necessity in your neck of the woods.
