I have now started using raw files. I want to review the photos on the sd card on my little laptop when I am away from home. Has anybody got a suggestion for how to this. I assume windows 7 will only view jpegs.

I use Irfanview on my netbook. It is free and good for viewing photos. It is set as my default viewer.

You just need the Pentax RAW codec installed and you can download it from the Japanese or American sites.

Just buy a bigger memory card and shoot RAW+ then you have the added bonus of not having to process the RAW files if the jpeg is OK

Agreed +1

You can also delete any RAW files not needed if the JPG is sufficient.
Lens tests and the like don't need RAW files.

JPG's off Pentax cameras are huge and must contain much more
detail than normal JPG's saved from an editing program, which
are usually half the size.

Doesn't seem to include K-5 PEFs yet.

It does include the K-7 though - I haven't had a K-7, are K-5 PEFs different from K-7 ones?

Every model has its own slightly different PEF which, IMO makes DNG the RAW capture of choice.
