DPR review of K-7

I keep my K10D on 5 shot  -1-.5-0+.5+1 auto bracketing whenever I'm
serious about a shot in non basic light... glad I ain't shoot'n film.
I agree it is an issue. I had mine readjusted by Pentax but had it
changed back because low light metering had become a nightmare. I've
learned to work around it. And I know it is worth my while - today I
was out for a walk in the rain again in a major photo area and the
only other guy beside me was a pro with a D700 - all the Canikon
people were at home keeping their gear dry while I was happily
shooting away =)
Cheers
Ecke
