I thought that how you used the light (or lack of) is great in the airplane shots I wish I was that good.
The animals are awesome... are they stuffed?

Is ISO 3200 in K-7 true ISO 3200 and not processed 1600 like the K100D? How about in the K20D?

Thank you for the C&C. Don't rely on the pink colors form these photos. There was not just tungsten light there, but a variety of light sources including red and yellow colored lights. There are no problems with the K-7 colors.
I think you did an excellent job with these photos. I also would not be concerned about the colors - many artificial light situations, can vary in the color given off by the lights, most installers aren't too concerned about photography when they replayce such lights or install them in the first place.

well done,

Phil

No they are not stuffed, they were taken at the Cincinnati Zoo. Thank you for the compliments. I like the airforce museum shots but, I think the lower iso shots definitely is more pleasing. There is definitely a significant drop in IQ when high iso is used. But, it is still very good.

AFAIK, iso 3200 is iso 3200 in both the K20D and the K-7, where as iso 6400 which needs to be opened in the custom menu is just an extrapolation of iso3200.

Phil, thank you. I think the K-7 does colors just fine. Extreme manipulation in LR2.4 does funky things to it, where as the K10D was more resistant to that type of deterioration. But, it is still more than fine, and it could even be a software issue. I am fine with the K-7 colors...even pink

Very very good pictures-the colors are superb those reconnaissance Mosquitos had that very strange blue color that was captured very well. The US Navy blue on the Catalina is also spot on-no problems with colors at all. I think these pictures worth hundred times more than any Iso charts in any reviews.Top notch animal shots too.

Andras, coming from a pilot, it is high praise indeed. Thanks. Enjoyed your PPG gallery.

P.S: oh! what the heck...another iso 3200 image
