Luxury industry is quite funny, and quite volatile too. Not only the consumers have a wrong idea about what is luxurious, even the manufacturers seem to think that by applying a coat or two of a precious metal, a gadget or a product would become “luxurious”.
Alas, if only things were that easy! Thus, Pentax has also gone wr9ong and unveiled the limited edition K-7 DSLR which is practically the same as the older K-7 DSLR but just comes with a coat of silver. Only a few thousands of these units would be marketed worldwide, and that apparently will make the K-7 DSLR exclusive.
We luxury reviewers would like to remind the manufacturers that cameras do not become luxurious by applying a coat of silver or gold, and what makes a product luxurious is its exclusivity, its quality and the efficiency which it must provide to the extreme levels. If you as a consumer would like to believe this is luxurious, it comes with the usual reinforced glass plate, updated firmware, photo processing software and weatherproof capability. I would advise you to stay away from it.
