The famous lawnmower test

So how effective is Shake Reduction as this is a major feature for this body.

Secondly, how do you benefit from the unique modes the K10D supports ie. ISO sensativity mode etc? Likewise the Shutter & Aperture AE mode? Do most people simply make use of Tv and Av here?

How does the K10D perform compared to others above ISO 800 WRT to noise?

Who actually uses raw processing inside the camera?

What if any is the downside of having no AF assist lamp?
Hi Steffi. First of all I don't own the K10D...yet. But here are pretty good examples of what shake reduction is capable of.

Not definitive but certainly dramatic.

I think that all of you concerns have been well addressed, just wanted to add my personal experience to the SR of K10D... Over time, we tend to develop certain "staidness" through various breathing techniques, how we hold the camera etc. But in short, I can honestly say that with K10D I have no hesitation to approach most still subjects at 1/15 sec, even better in many cases and able to keep far more of those shots with the lack of light then I was ever able to keep with my prior camera (Canon 350D).

Just a few samples:
