So I had a coupon at Dell so I took the plunge and picked up the K20. Just got it today and these are the 1st shots from it. So far I like what I see, but obviously I haven't used it a ton. AF does seem faster then my K10 but it is hard to quantify. Something else that is hard to quantify but I feel like I like the overall rendering better (colors etc) then the K10.

These aren't the worlds best shots, but I need to at least try out the camera I took a variety of shots at ISOs from 100 to 800 and I'm very please so far with the noise. All these where taken pretty much at sunset (in case your wondering why there is a warm tone to them).

Very nice shots, the K20 does look like a nice step up. I like my Ist but.... that shake reduction would be nice....

Thanks for sharing. After looking at the EXIF on these, I am extreamly impresses with the results especially at the 800 iso on the last two. At the posted resolution, I don't see any noise. I"m sure if I blew up to 100% there would be some. I must start filling my piggy bank for this body.
