Very nice picture for such a high ISO straight out of the camera. I assume it is cropped. What lens are you using.

My hummers are really shy so I have to stand quite a way off and use a 55-300 to get close but I use an aging K7 which only goes to "cough" iso6400 but is pretty noisy up there but here in CA we get way too much of the solar rays so it is easy to use low ISOs

cheers

whoa! Perhaps I should trade K-1 for this and save some cash?

At the same viewing size, the K-1 will still out-perform the K-70 in terms of high ISO noise; plus you have the benefit of the full frame sensor. The K-70's output looks great, but if you already have the K-1, hang on to it!

Still, actually pretty good, I think. I would have expected noisier than this.

Yes, true, but at the end of the day one has to determine how much noise noise can be tolerated, and how often. It is very infrequent that I need to go beyond ISO 6400 and at that level the APS C sensors are getting really good these days. I have an ISO 12,800 photo from a museum and it was much better than I expected it to be. It was from K5 classic. K-1 looks thrilling but I'm thinking I don't need near that much camera.

K-70 would have had same Noise & Dynamic range results if the K-70 had :

36/(1.5*1.5) = 16 megapixels, i.e. each photosite on both cameras is of same area, (assuming both have same technology).
