Oddly, my K100D tops out at 3200, which I want to say is less noisy than the 10's 1600.
I think if you compare at the same size, rather than blowing up the K10D image larger by viewing at 100%, you'll find the K100D at 3200 does not really beat the K10D at 1600. Although it's possible you'd have to shoot RAW to really get ISO 1600 images form the K10D that beat ISO 3200 from the K100D.

Interesting. I'll try that next time I have both along. I never use the K100d at 3200, but I do find 1600 works well. I've been teaching a friend who "does not want to learn about f-stops" to use this camera, and I have noticed that the "night scene" mode on the K100d locks at ISO 1600.

I do agree that the K10d must be shot in RAW mode for good ISO 1600. I found ISO 1600 unsatisfactory on the K10d before I switched to RAW and used third party noise reduction.
