I was just getting ready to post this and seen Marc's post and almost didn't .

I would have loved to get this shot in good light though.

I agree- would have been a lot better without the noise. Nice bokeh, though! Perhaps you should try setting your in-camera NR setting to high (check out my thread on that).

Thanks Adam for the comment. I thought I was going to squeeze by without one.
I've had my K7 for around 6 months and I still haven't played with the in-camera NR. I will have to check out your thread for sure.

Heres another shot I took at ISO 1600 an it turned out much better I think. Still at f3.5 but only 1/125 sec. I think it is the reflection on the water that hurts the exposure on the duckling shot. Bokeh and noise is much better on the squirrel.
