New Pentaxian as of Today

Scratching my head, also. I downloaded PhotoME. I open a PEF file, click on the "camera" button at the top of the PhotoME user interface, and it says my camera was manufactured 20061207 and the "model revision" is 1.2....

I've been lurking on this site for quite a while while dreaming of some day owning a K10D. Well, my dream has become reality, I received one from my DH for Christmas! So far I'm having fun with it and am enjoying learning to use it.

The exif info from photome says my camera was manufactured 12/29/2006 and is Model Revision 1.1. This is confusing to me since I'm just learning about my new camera, can someone tell me if this is those numbers are a bad thing?

Thanks!

So far from what I can decipher is that photome is on crack.

Finally installed PhotoME. My manufacture date is 2007/07/10, rev. 2.2, serial #2177747.
For whomever is keeping track of all this, I purchased my K10D on 2007/08/29.

Can anyone else here verify an actual difference in noise between hardware revisions? I have two K10D cameras, one purchased several months ago (hardware revision 2.1) and the other purchased just two weeks ago (hardware revision 2.6). Anyway, I set out to verify this myself by testing both cameras under the same conditions (subject, lighting, computer, etc), but could not, in the end, find any consistent differences in the resulting images (over 20 total). Even prints viewed with a magnifying glass were virtually identical (no consistent differences). Those tests, of various subjects taken at ISO 800 & 1600, included dim daylight, normal room lighting, various semi-darkened conditions, and flash lighting in total darkness.

Try to test K10D with 2.6 revision and K10D with revision 1.1, 1.2, for example.
It would be strange if you can't see any difference.

Maybe, maybe not; it depends on the individual.

If you suffer from measurebatitis, then it's definitely a big deal.

So you're saying Pentax is ADDING noise as an improvement?

You'll excuse me if I find that doubtful...

Apparently, this is a pre 2.1 revision shot:



While this is a post 2.1 revision shot:



But I'm still open to the idea that PhotoME is on crack
