Actually I know the shortcoming of jpeg pretty well. But with Pentax at least, in-camera jpeg processing is still behind good RAW convert and it shows with high iso. The noise with the OP picture is not really the result of jpeg compression, but more of camera processing.
you shouldn't compare jpg to raw for quality. there's simply no way the processor in the camera will be as good as say photoshop. i didn't say the noise was from the file format, you did. if he had shot jpg + raw, the jpg would've been smoothed more due to compression. the color channel noise would be close, but at nearly 5:1 compression there's a lot of data missing.

Boy, I was getting a lot of noise on my IST and couldn't figure out why. Googled for pentax and found this site - then found my answer on the first search!
