KX vs K7 in RAW HIGH ISO? Any real difference?

HI, I posed this question on DPREVIEW and want to see what more a focus bunch of Pentaxholics have to say.

Looking at both, ordered a KX. Read DP Review's of the K7 and saw that in jpeg the K7 is not great above ISO800 but in RAW it appeared to be pretty close to the rest of the group. I compared primarily to D300 numbers and files as I'm guessing the KX will be cloeset to it.

I shoot only RAW but do shoot at 1600 and 3200 available light often.

So your input would be welcomed and appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

I guess you need to hit dpreview pentax forum and read some topics where the user gordonbgood was posting - those topics/postings are a good source of information...

for example - K-x vs K-7, without K-7 ISO cheating [Page 1]: Pentax SLR Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review
