Let me clarify that: Other than the K-7, Pentax sensors have always been top-notch.

Compared to sensors from contemporary cameras by other makers I'd say they've all been top-notch including the K-7 (which was a decent match for the D300, just not the advance over the K20 that we hoped for) but excluding the K10, whose VPN meant that it was often tricky over ISO400 even in decent light.

All academic now, of course.
