    Just purchased the K7 after working with a series of Pentax camera my first was film then Dist, then K10. I’ve shot a few pictures indoors with high ISO and to be honest was not very pleased with the noise on the camera. I will reduce the ISO and work with the camera. There are some great features that knocked my socks off. Can you recommend a good instruction manual? I did purchase the Magic Lantern for my K10. Wondering if there is something better out there for the K7

    I have been using a K10D for about three years. I like a ot of features on it and just ordered a K-7 for myself. One of my biggest disappointment with the K10D was the noise at high ISO settings. I found shooting above ISO 800 negated what I was trying to do because of the noise… I’m looking forward to using the K-7 because of many of the features on the camera. I didn’t buy it because of the video capability. We’ll see!
