did not read what you guys are saying, but I do not see any K5 advantage over D7000 in that comparison.. and IN 25600 pentax looks smudged.. while D7000 holds more details.. that's what I see will read later what you see..

to me personally D7000 samples looks more attractive.. with better contrast, sharper, better colors etc.
but of course I still would go for k5 because of everything else..

But the Nikon sample shot at f9, and the Canon was shot at f8. Not exactly a huge difference. F8-11 should be the sweet spot for just about any camera.
No. If we're to believe dpreview's own test, the sweet spot for the FA 50mm f/1.5 is around f/4; by f/9 it's performance is significantly decreased. The Nikkor is better at that aperture, btw.

L.E. Wow, pentaxforums is censoring dpreview...

to be honest, all cameras are great, but for me, k5 has much more better colors on high iso(12800 and higher), or to say it this way: color noise (or how it is called). especially when you look at black colour. iso 1600-3200 is in my opinion better than canikon. since i am not pixel peeper i will be very happy with it. more than an upgrade from k200d

if you are looking at dpreview crappy examples, I can commiserate you only.
Dpreview don't know even how to test cameras properly, why they don't use for example same Sigma lenses on all testing bodies ?

That pretty much was my finding as well. The K-5 does not look that hot in this comparison, I can only hope there is some lens problem causing the softness in almost all the k-5 shoots. And the additional raw nr makes even the noise look as it is out of focus on the higher iso settings.

The examples do look pretty shoddy. Really unfair to the K-5. Not sure if the f/8-f/9 makes a huge difference, but they should keep it lower to get rid of any diffraction. I really distrust them as soon as the 7D examples are thrown in. 7D appears to beat the 7000 and the k-5 in RAW at high ISO's, which can't be true, not after the K-5 shots I have seen around.

I asked a question in the 'Open Talk' section of the DPReview forums about why they using the FA 50mm 1:1.4 instead of the DA* 55 1:1.4 for example:

Pixel size and resolution vs. sensor size

As said, when it comes to noise there is no substitute for larger pixels...
Not everyone agrees with that. See:

Noise, Dynamic Range and Bit Depth in Digital SLRs and

http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/en/Our-publications/DxOMark-Insights/More-pixels-offset-noise!

I don't believe that there is any disagreement that "when it comes to noise there is no substitute for larger sensors."
