If PC Mag is paying $1600 for K-5, they probably haven't heard of the "internets" - 'nuff said.

I've wondered even reading the threads here, and reviews such as this if there is a range of quality output from the sensor in the K-5? Some bodies might be better than others. Is that the case?

I would think it is much more plausable that there is range of quality output from the reviewers. Some bodies might be better than others. :-)

Personally, when I need a new computer I always go to Popular Photography for suggestions.
I've now sold my camera and purged all pictures taken. They must have been trash.

I think they must have had a bad copy which is sort of a double edged sword. On one hand they just had a bad unit so high iso noise was exaggerated, on the other hand a unit with such differences just shows how bad k-5's QC really is, having said that it just makes me feel so lucky that I got a k-5 unit that has no problems at all.

I don't trust anyone whose ratings you can read directly when googling.
