That's ISO 1600? Damn, I need new camera - my K7 is useless at 800.

Great sharpness and detail. But you cut off the tail .

I've pushed it up to 6400 and it's still VERY usable.

Yeah, not much though.

Really like the lighting. Can't tell you how many tails I've cut off!

I would imagine that the K30 would be quite useable to 6400, I find the K5 reasonable up to just below 10,000 before noise becomes a major issue. But even then I've gotten some reasonably good snaps with a bit of noise reduction.

It is a huge improvement over the K7!

Thanks, Harriet. I shot this with the kit 55-300mm with a $10 2x teleconverter in HEAVY overcast before the sun (behind the clouds) cleared the treeline. In other words -- really crappy light! The grabber here is not the $10 2X on a kit lens. The grabber is the ISO the camera chose and the results. Now, to be fair, I did give this a VERY quick run through Zoner Pro and a little Topaz. Mainly, to get the exposure right -- it was a little light -- and sharpen it up just a tad. This is uncropped. EXIF data provided.

You are getting some great shots with the K30 Gary, If I ever have to replace my Kr looks like the K30 would be my choice

Thanks, Hans. It was a tough choice, for sure. But, I'm sure I made the right one for me.
