Look at the first left bud
Are these crops or down-sampled? They all look fine on my end.

Might as well call me a troll too because my K5 and K5-IIs both kill my K1 regarding noise.
I can almost agree with you on that....I think my K5IIs was at least equal to the K, maybe not better but at least as good. The difference for me is low light focusing...the K1 shines in that area..the K5IIs, well, not so good. I have some great high ISO shots with both cameras....noise is not as important to me as it may be for some, but fast and sure focus even in low light is very important. The K1 pleases me superbly!

two accusations trolling and then a postulation the OP could be on drugs.. some of you are too much with the personal attacks.. and that is what you start with... first response to the OP. incredible.
Agree...we are better than that and should act accordingly. The OP does not fit the mold of a troller, and we should do some "troller research" before we start with the labels.

K1- Shot in very low light ISO 12800 1/80 handheld (Great SR!) f 7.1 @ 240mm...Bigma 50-500


My own experience tells me the noise depends on many factors, not just a few. Some are fine, others not. It was the same with my K5IIs.

If the OP needs help,some of you with better knowledge concentrate on helping him, not cutting him down...please!

Regards!

I always start at f/5.6. It's an old high school habit, but it works for me. I start at ISO 200 or 400.

I can hand hold down to 1/30 without creating motion blur. If the camera wants a shutter speed below 1/30, on K-1 I can raise ISO using the third wheel until I'm comfortable. With K-01 (same sensor as K-5) I have to shoot in TAv or take my eye out of shooting position to raise ISO.

Frequently in these shots, if I refuse to open the aperture, I will have underexposed, which I'd rather do than clip highlights. I sometimes go ahead, knowing I can adjust curves in post. I use PDCU to process RAWs sometimes, or PSE, and processing RAW's I rarely have noise when I raise shadows - but if I try to do a quick and dirty cleanup of a camera jpeg it is an entirely different story - they just aren't as malleable as DNG's.

My K-1 files are significantly more flexible than my K-01 files though. I suggest it much more likely the OP has some sort of settings or workflow issue than a faulty sensor, but whatever the case unless 1/200 f/8 is a full manual setting there shouldn't be appreciable noise.

Nice shot!
It's hard to make any detailed critique on a web size shot, but it looks sharp enough and noise is not intrusive.
A uniform background like that will tend to accentuate any noise anyway.
Do you have the option of adding some extraneous light and shooting at bas ISO?
