Jpeg compression quality

This should stir things up a bit...

According to this site:

ImpulseAdventure - PENTAX *ist D () vs PENTAX K10D (): JPEG Quality Comparison


ImpulseAdventure - PENTAX *ist D () vs Canon EOS 5D (fine): JPEG Quality Comparison


ImpulseAdventure - PENTAX *ist D () vs NIKON D3 (FINE): JPEG Quality Comparison


So the old *ist D maybe wasn't so bad after all, at least at some things.

Yeah, the K10D is heavy-handed with compression. There's some old threads about this and it seems the K20D added a "★★★★" mode in response.

what do they know
and anyway, *ist D was (still is) a good camera. So is K10D but they messed up the JPEG compression a bit on that one. Shame...
