There are some information that K10D with revision 2.2 and higher has lower noise

There are some information that K10D with revision higher than 2.1 has lower noise at ISO800 and 1600 than K10D with revision lower 2.2.
All K10D got the new revision numbers after K10 GP had been realeased.
There are K10D now with revision 2.6 and with very good noise control at ISO800, very close to K100D and ist* series.

You can see the model of revision and date of manufacture in "Photo Me" prog.
Any user who has K10D any revision
can compare K10D with revision 1.0 till 2.1 and last revisions cameras.
But to check it and make your own test
you need the same condition and 2 cameras with lower and higher revision.

The important - in ist* series the date of manufacture and revision of cameras had not been tied.

In K10D - the later date of manufacture, the higher revision of camera.

Hi,

I have a K10 manufactured on march 17 2007 with rev. 2.1 but it looks like it's performances as far as noise control at high ISO is on par with what I saw from other K10s (ie not that good at ISO above 800).

I can take a few tests pics if anybody is interested but makin comparisons would require having different rev. # cameras on the same setup...

K10D - ISO800 и ISO1600 - фото и кропы - Форумы Пента-клуба
have a look at crops. it's better than K10D 1.0-1.2.

and my friend bought recently K10D with revision 2.6 and i can compare several pictures with K10D 1.2 at ISO800 - 2.6 works better.
maybe there are some changes in work of exposition of new revision or something else.
I'm not sure. But, I ask local Pentaxians to check.

Rumour?

What is this unsubstantiated rumour based on?

Even though it is true, why bother? Just wait for one more month and see what Pentax will offer next and get buy the next replacement model for the k10d.

Sorry, I'm lost. What are y'all talking about? What is the "revision"? It's apparently not the firmware, as I'm pretty sure the current firmware is 1.3.

Sounds like a novel idea if you are made out of money.

Will,

It's the hardware revision they refer to, not the firmware.
You can find it in the EXIF data of your shots.
Try PhotoME to find out yours.

My K10D is on rev 1.6.

Succes.

Firmware could be the same.
I say about camera REVISION. Open RAW file in Photo Me and you can see date of manufacture and revision number.

This information should be checked.
But, some of users of K10D GP say about lower noise at ISO800 to compare with first revision of K10D. The new cameras of K10D are with revision with 2.2 and above. Approx. from summer of 2007. Maybe from May 2007.

Thanks for the best entertainment of the day so far...

When did 2.2 come out? According to Exiftool, my K10D's revision is 2.1, with a manufacture date of 2007:08:01. If all the date fields have the same format, that's August 1st.

I'm looking at my EXIF data in Adobe Bridge, but can't find this revision data. Does it matter what softwaree you use to access the EXIF file?
