I think semantics rules here. They didn't say "improved sensor" they say "redesigned sensor".
No, I did not choose the word. Pentax said "improved" signal to noise ratio.
And of course, this was not from their patent applications, this was from their K-7 Pentax Japan web site.

As always, I am wondering why we cannot keep stuff like this in the mega thread.

Anyway, here you go:
That's an interesting observation you make about the darks being pushed. Why so is that's the very processing I've been finding I need to do in Lightroom to my RAWs to both make it resemble what my eyes see, and get detail out of the darks in most all my birding shots. The darks are just way too dark too early that my K10d gives me in scenes where there's both direct sunlight and shade from leaves or branches. I'm often giving it a contrast curve adjustment of Highlights=0, Lights=0, Darks=33, Shadows=-10 or something to that effect to make the photo natural looking, the way my eyes saw it.

So I'm thinking I'm going to like the K-7's rendering. But in Lightroom I can do that fairly well and keep noise down. Hoping the K-7's in camera processing can keep the noise down too. ...and I may finally be free of all the RAW processing I do and can be happy with the JPEGs form the camersa again.
