Interesting article on ISO performance at intermediate steps

The Riddle of Intermediate ISO Settings

I wonder how the K-5 would fare in this test, and if the ISO 80 setting is really full of pixie dust like we like to think it is?

Anyone care to run this test with a K-5?

I think DXo or some other test site tested ISO 80, comparing it with the.. Nikon D7000 I think, which is supposed to have the same Sony sensor as the K-5, but doesn't offer ISO 80. And if I remember right, the test showed that ISO 80 was in fact better and not just digitally darkened. But I might be wrong. I would like to see someone do the above method and post results. Maybe this could even be done "by the forum" for a couple different cameras.

Yes the k5 test would make interesting reading , if some one has the time and the software to carry out the test as described in the article.
