K-5 ISO 6400
ISO 12800
ISO 51200

All files are straight from the camera. It was RAW+ mode, so I have the same RAW files. Keep in mind, that Site deleted exif and compressed the pictures

Looks interesting, though I think I would have turned off NR for the 6400 and 12800, mainly because they seem to look better(more detail) and the noise looks pretty good in contrast to the in camera NR version.

Great sharing though!
Thanks for that.

High-ISO NR (Rec. Mode 3) setting is applied just to JPEG files or the RAW files are affected as well ?

ISO 51200 RAW
ISO 12800 RAW
ISO 6400 RAW

I don't know actually about NR, as long, as I didn't go to menu, each setting was default. BTW, Can't believe my ears, how K-5 shutter silent is. I tried some basic noise removal using noise ninja, and therefore I think K-5 is absolutely real winner in every category (did not test AF though).

SR is OFF, NR is set to Medium with high ISO
Hope it'll help a bit...

No-one yet suggested the ongoing thread featuring high ISO images from Pentax cameras: The last few pages mainly show the work of the K-5 with some stunning results at ISO 12800. I've shown a few of my own, and even similar settings as the circus above, with impressive detail and noise control at ISO 3200-12800.
