My thoughts exactly. You don't shoot at high ISO just to shoot at high ISO. You do it when the light level requires it. Let's see some faces by candle light at 6400.
You mean something like this

Both images were shot in RAW with a K20D.
They were processed using ACR6.2 and Topaz Denoise(for NR).

The first image was part of some low light ISO6400 trials I conducting a few months back. I used the SMC-A 50mm 1.4 @ f/2 with a shutter of 1/10s

The second image was taken at ISO 1250 with a PK/A Vivitar 28mm 2.8 CF @ f/4 1/100s(to help isolate the subject against the background).

Yeah, I guess something like that. Very nice pictures, by the way.

Now, if you can get a hold of a K-5 and a D7000 and compare the two in similar lighting, we would be on to something.

Whenever I see these test shots at 6400 or whatever, and the other settings lead me to believe the shot could have been taken at 400 or 800, I think "nice--entirely unrealistic, but nice."

I beleive that is a consequence of the lighting.
To me this says poor AWB.

Show off!

Just a joke JohnBee.

I have been in awe of your K20/iso6400 shots for quite some time......amazing!

Great work, JohnBee! From my laptop screen, I'd say it can easily print up to 10R without much distractive noise. Very imporessed.

The two Nikon sampes here post1196215 and here post1196229 have a different cast and both look over exposed to me. Are they overexposed as they were shot or in PP? Latter would add noise... maybe D7000 isn't so bad.

This is very impressive and the kind of high-ISO performance I've been waiting for! Looking at the 100% crops we can see that the noise is greatly improved. But taking a closer look at the resized images, it becomes apparent just how much improved the K-5 is. Kudos to Pentax AND Sony!

With the K-7 shot the contrast has been greatly increased (by the camera) to try and mask the poor DR - notice how there are absolutely no details in the shadows. Nasty.

I think it says that it's shot in bright mode, though, that explains some of the high contrast.
