not too shabby. Which RAW process tool did you use?

This definitely looks like it's for one of those "any shot is better than none at all" scenarios. It's noisy as hell, but it seems mostly to infect the bokeh and leave the subject alone. I've nothing to compare it to because I have a K-5 and it stops at 51,200, but this is better than I recall any of my shots being at 25,600 or possibly even 12,800, so at the end of the day all I can say is wow!

(If I were even considering trading up to anything other than a K-1, things like this would be putting the K-70 well to the front of the pack, especially if the performance at more pedestrian ISO showed similar improvement.)

I'm thinking of trading my K-3 in on a K-70, just to get to KAF4. What kind of hummer is it? Is the colour accurate?

They look like Anna's Hummingbirds.

Nice! As a former (ab)user of ISO 1000 color film, I'd say this is almost as good as that old film.

P.S. Is your sensor really dirty?

Did you shoot through a window or something in that first shot? Some weird splotches on there.

Hmm... It really looks like sensor dust to me. The background tree should be totally out of focus yet there's the identical pattern of 6 dots above and the left of the birds, the same thread-object to the middle right, and even a dark spot on one bird that's just at the edge of the second bird.

I'd bet that if you take a picture of pure blue sky at f/32 (or f/22), the same pattern will appear in that image, too.

Just for the sake of comparison - K5 at ISO 51200 with PP, FF, from RAW file, cat under 7 watt night light.
See EXIF for details...
