I've tried the K-30 (a pre-production unit) at ISO3200 and 6400, even in JPG the results are okay. But I'm sorry I can't post the results at the moment because they are, you know, not the final product...
At last, an actual report, rather than speculation! Thank you very much Frank. In actuality, I was wondering if there were any first hand accounts of the high ISO performance of the K30. I do a lot of photography in darkened theaters for my wife's school, and high ISO performance is important for me. The K5 is the first Pentax camera that gave me the kind of ISO performance I needed. I can't wait to see what the production version of the K30 can do. If it works well, then it will probably replace my K7 for use as a second body.

The high ISO performance of the K-01 should be indicative of the performance of the K30.

You really don't need to give him traffic when it has been available on the website for days:
