I've been choosing some pics for 20x30" prints, and finding out that higher iso at least from 10K to 20K and perhaps lower, really degrade what you can expect to produce at larger sizes. Of course, its the use of NR that causes the degradation. Just saying that the less NR used for lower iso's, the better able an APS sensor will be to compete with FF sensors for larger prints, IMO.

From what i've read, Canon sensors have not been the industry ISO leaders ever since Nikon produced the D2 and D3 series. Also, Canon has not put AF in camera adjustments in the 50D or 60D.

Interesting comment below about Sony and Samsung cams using full time LV, essentially. Design decisions have sometimes unintended consequences.

Comparing directly (picture based comparison at low iso) two sensors from two camera using different lenses and all that done by DPR is very funny but also very misleading (both ways). The Pentax may have a softer lens. Or the Samsung lens is excellent.

I doubt that we shall ever see an SLT from Pentax.

We might see a camera with the same sensor at some point though. As always with Sony sensors it depends how far down Sony's customer list Pentax finds itself - Doesn't it normally go Sony - Nikon - Pentax in terms of access to new APS-Cs?
With Nikon starting to build its own sensors I doubt Pentax is on the bottom of the list. Sony will sell their sensor to who ever that why the k5 came out at the same time as the d7000...

Sony sells sensor it is bad business to discriminate on who it will sell it to.

What sensor is made by Nikon? I'm not aware of any. They get supplied from Sony, Aptina and others.

Just seen it today that the V1 sensor is made by Aptina. Maybe they can make a nice sensor for Pentax.

Nikon sensor = any sensor found in a Nikon camera with specs that they are not ashamed of.

Although I am not certain, their claim to developing/producing sensors reminds me of some autobiographies that should be, but are not, presented as ".... as told to [name of actual author here]".

Are you sure? I remember Nikon boasting about production of the D2h image sensor. That was particulary one to be ashamed of.

Ah, that was before my time this time 'round. If that makes sense. I was surprised to see the WiFi interface. Ahead of its time?
