k20d test in popular photography magazine

i was in school library reading a magazine named popular photography...
there was a test of k20d....
it claims that at iso 1600 noise level is almost perfect.
at 3200 unusable
at 6400 irritating...
is it right????

You can find some earlier threads here about the review. There's some skepticism, to say the least.

But, that particular conclusion looks about right from everything else I've seen, depending on your tolerance for "usable".

I'm perfectly happy with my iso1600 results. I haven't shot above that though...
