K5-family reunion @ 3200 ISO

Family reunion. Dimly lit room. Everybody expects lots of images to be taken. Welcome to ISO-noise hell.
This is the situation when I usually would be tempted to leave the camera at home and just enjoy the party.
But it so happens that my camera is a Pentax K-5, so I brought it with me and shot loads of pics all night @ 3200 ISO.

Yes, the K-5 makes ISO 3200 look like a walk in the park, especially when paired with a good fast lens.

I've done several low-light shoots recently barely going below ISO 6400. With Lightroom handling the K-5 DNG's, the images looked great and everyone was more than happy with the output.

This is why I upgraded from the K-20d, and although the K-20 d is a great camera the K-5 shoots just as nice images @ 3200 ISO as
the K-20d did @ 400 ISO.

First pic looks like a studio. It's going on my desktop...if you don't mind.

I certainly don't mind. The best feedback one can get is someone using pics for their desktops. -Thank you.
