No, I don't think I saw that one...
I'll see if I can't dig it up.
I'll get it.

edit: saw your update. As we're on the topic, thought I'd post it here anyway:

What's wrong with the sound of U2?

Bono's faux political rubbish.

I don't think I'll be using ISO 51,200 very much if ever, but I've found the 10,000 region to be very usable.
Actually on the scene you've shot I prefer the 51200 version.

I don't have the aversion to noise that some have, and actually like the first one best for the scene posted. It is those times that you want noise-free where the K5 will shine for me, and the most important factor in many wildlife shots is the ability to gain a little speed at the higher ISO levels.
I like this shot I got with my K20D, but can only imagine how much easier it would have been at ISO 1600...or higher?

I look forward to owning a K5, I am hoping it will make wildlife shooting easier and give better results more often

With noise reduction and sharpening, I declare it usable.
