Default k5 High ISO tests. WOW!

Check out these K5 high ISO tests. Just blows my K7 out of the water. Oh well, I'll just sit here in my great loneliness seeing how I can't afford a new camera.

very impressive at 12800 with some NR later it looks to be very useable, 51200 was pushing it. Would have love to see a 25600 iso sample
