K100D & K10D high ISO comparison

There is an informal, "real world" (read: uncontrolled) high ISO comparison of the K10D & K100D over at dpreviews, if you're interested.

I posted a simple pair of photos from my own experiments not too long ago, here. Since I sold my K100D, my comparison is between the *ist DS and the K10D.

I have long contended that the claim the K10D does a lousy job at anything over ISO-E 400 is a big exaggeration. In my informal tests, the K10D doesn't do much worse than the K100D I used to have or the *ist DS I have now. I shoot a lot of low-light photos. When I switched from the K100D to the K10D I simply didn't notice any sudden, dramatic degradation in the quality of my photos due to noise.

I do wish the K10D could produce noise-free images in low-light at ISO-E 1600. I gather that some other cameras do a better job. I just don't find it to be a huge problem.

I agree entirely; another reason I wish I had 3200 to go to when I was shooting moving people in a dark club while wide open @ 1.4.

Besides, thanks to Roentarre, I discovered Noise Ninja -- fantastic.
