. . . and here's the 25600 crop with lower levels of the same treatment. . .next to your Denoised sample. With some additional PP tricks, the upper reaches of ISO on the K-5 can be used, even for some larger prints -- maybe not of the most detailed subjects, but I'd say that certain classes of subjects would work fine.

An interesting collection of shots (I somehow missed this thread earlier). Scott - what you did adding Clean to the mix is very interesting - I may have to look at it (which means I'll regret not buying the complete set of their plugins, I already own DeNoise and Detail). I've never tried Clean before, didn't think I would really have a use for it.

You guys are driving me nuts. I'm still on the fence about the new cameras, I keep going back and forth between the Kr and K5.

Again the "stable" color even in high ISO shots surprises me. Thanks for sharing!

The K-r is half the price of a K5... if you need the weather sealing you have to bite the bullet, but otherwise the K-r looks like the winner to me if you take the price into account. My 2 cents
