The K-7 is calling my name (RAW file request)

I just sold a lens - DA12-24 - with profit no less! And while I was thinking about buying a DA15 instead, the fact that a better body than the K10D is now within financial reach is very tempting. I just handled a K-7 in a store and it's just so refined in every way. I hope the high ISO doesn't bite me, but as I'm somewhat more relaxed about noise than most people I don't think it'll be a problem. Could someone upload (to rapidshare or some such) two K-7 RAW files, preferably one at ISO 100, and one at ISO 1600 to 3200. I want to see what it's like, and whether my modestly specced laptop can actually handle 14MP files without blowing up.

Your lap-top will handle it, if you walk away for a while.
I walk away from my core 2 duo 3.16 gig desk-top.

Cheers, Mike.

Thanks Wheatfield! It's noticably slower than with my K10D files, but it's not undoable

Now I just need to come at peace with spending €900
