There are a ton of great shots here. This week I snapped a shot of a woodpecker at ISO 1600, I was under the canopy with him, shooting into the sun. Not my favorite conditions. But I'm very happy I have anything to share at all.

Tamron 75-300 Di
ISO 1600

This is not a great shot -
but it is under very, very trying circumstances -
a shot that on all accounts should not have produced any semblance of a presentable result -

I am simply amazed that the K-x even managed this shot -
there is subject movement of the performer in the foreground - she was mostly in silhouette/shadow - I had some difficulty even seeing her expression and the K-x would occasionally have difficulty focusing too..... I have not done any deNoising.

lame excuses aside -
EXIF data re-attached -

ISO12,800, 1/10sec, f/3.5

Me too. Try the Exif Viewer add-on (tools->add-ons, then use the "find add-ons" command). Lots of cool stuff available.
Ooh, yay. Tried one, (EXIF Viewer 1.51) but it doesn't seem to be doing anything, though. I wonder if it's not up to speed on the latest Firefox update, or I'm just not seeing how to use it.

Sorry guys. I had to remove the pic. What I liked about the photo was the expression on her face. Sorry about that.

What should happen is you right click an image and see "View Image Exif Data" as one of the options in the popup menu that always appears when you right click; select that and you get a window with whatever info is present.

Just want to jump in on this. I finally had a chance to really test out my new K-x, and I am extremely satisfied with the high ISO performance so far. I just had to share this ISO 6400 shot I took earlier today.

K-x: 1/200", f/5.6, ISO 6400, 55mm on DA L 18-55mm f/3.5 - 5.6 AL
Straight out of the camera w/ exception to resizing

Shot New Year's Eve events for the newspaper. Had to try out ISO 12800. Shot with Vivitar 24mm manual f2.8 prime. Slight noise reduction, sharpening. I'm amazed.

The picture of the guy in the sombrero is so much more powerful in B&W. Awesome.

K10D, ISO1600, 1/1600sec F/5.6, K153/2.5 (wrongly reported as 150mm in EXIF data):

It seems that the noise is rather well controlled when I am able to use a fast shutter speed. Never thought of a relationship between speed and noise, but I can hardly see any noise in this photo, even at 100%.
