ok. I'm having some trouble preserving the exif metadata. though some quick notes here. shot was taken wide open at 1.2. there are also some significant loss of fine detail during file compression. the lack of noise detail surely is noticeable when the image(head) is cropped. sorry I can't upload the original file which is quite big so I can't show the comparison here.

however, I'll just type some exif data here instead. exposure is set at 1/125 at ISO 800. spot metering, in AV mode. no flash. a bit of a lowlight setting taken indoors.

my thoughts on this is that the K-7 and the 1.2 performed very well. though I found noise ( NR set at medium), I considered them very essential and an asset for the photo. the fine noises define the essential details and contrast of the head, particularly around the nose and eyes area. I cropped the whole head around 15 inches inorder to see the fine linings that the noises produced in defining the head. for my personal taste, I would say that the noises in this test are not a distraction but rather a plus factor.
