He writes that the weather was very good. EXIF are preserved.
Frankly, I would comment that the image quality is just so-so, despite that he has so many excellent Pentax glass to shoot with (see the two picture shots for the Pentax lenses he brought). The first portrait of the lady was shot at ISO 200, but I can still see some noise at the background, which is somehow obvious, even for a picture that has been downscaled to that size.
Centre-weighted metering was used for all shots, but then drastic exposure compensations were required which I do believe with my Canon gear much less such compensations are required for similar situations - at least not so frequently and even when it is required, the compensation values would be smaller.
Anyway, since it is told that the K-7 hardware, in particular the sensor, will be altered, I think all those trials, tests, first reviews made around the world will all have to be reset. So, let's wait and see when the *real* machine is really out and what will happen! :-(
