High iso jpgs GX20 (k20) 1600-6400

High iso performance on this sensor seems quite usable to me... in spite of what others have said... not perfect but able to get a usable shot

Wow, I'd say that those pics are more than usable, if not great, considering the high iso!

To say that I am shocked ... would be an understatement.

My K20 at ISO 6400 jpgs would have been a color blotched mess and had horizontal lines runnin thru it. This is truly hard to understand.

I am just stunned at all these crazy ISO 3200/6400 shots that keep poppin up here after the K-x was released.
