The k-7 certainly does not sound like a gun going off! It's the same as the k-5 in virtually all but the sensor - which is the same one they used in the k20d, so not up to today's noise standards.

The person who wrote that review must have sensitive hearing!

As you point out though, Pentaxophile, the noise control won't be upto today's standard so I think I'll pass over the K7.

The K5 and the K7 are the most silent camera's i've ever heard.
The K10D now that one has a click, sound like a Kalashnikov.
The K7 and K5 are much more refined.

here is the k10D

The K7 is almost the same as the K5 in terms of features and handeling.
The biggest point the K5 has is the far better sensor.
Also the sensor in the Kr is better than the k7 at some points for example high iso but with low ISO the K7 is better.
So if you shoot landscapes or in the studio for example, the K7 is the one you want actually over the Kr, for concert and sport the Kr might be better.

I think the kr is probably better for landscape too Stefan, at least if you routinely lift shadows. The k-7 is better controls-wise and build-wise though, and the WR lends itself to outdoor landscapes. The k-5 has the best of both worlds, and then some!

Just expose to the right and all will be fine.
The sensor in the K7 is able to bring out a lot more details than the sensor in the Kr, that's why i geuss it's better.

Maybe it was the K10 I was thinking of and not the K7....sorry!!

Right, the choice has been made and when the redundancy payment comes I will be getting:

K5 body
Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG HSM II Macro Lens
Sigma 150-500mm F5.6-6.3 DG OS HSM Lens (if funds allow)
Metz Mecablitz 50 AF-1 Digital Flash

Thank you all so much for your advice, comments and tips. I'm much obliged to you for taking the time to help me out.
