Just trying out some ISO 12,800 in the evening light. Saw this male Cardinal with a sunflower seed on the tip of his tongue......Name:  IMGP7031-700.jpg

If you are close enough, and can focus, the high ISO will work well enough for most use. Some problem controlling the reds...I normally use Spix if red is involved, but didn't here and should have. Red seems in particular difficult for me with the K5 . Sometimes yes...sometimes no.....

Thanks Bob...not a very interesting shot,but at ISO 12,800 I wanted to show it can be useful........a really good shooter can do wonders with the K5. Me and Otis just sort of peck around the edges.....
