Raj - I think the results look great. I am not a pixel peeper. I prefer to judge images based upon size you would normally view/print them. Obviously if you're used to printing large landscapes things are different. But, it really is amazing how far sensor technology has come.

You also bring up a good point regarding the auto-ISO. I think what gets lost in the "which camera is better" debates is concentrating on the features important to YOU. I personally have no interest in auto-ISO. It doesn't fit with the way I shoot much. But you and I are two different people. I think too many people get caught up in the notion that a camera has to be the best at EVERYTHING. It doesn't. It just has to be the best at what the buyer needs it to be, given financial resources.

Very nice shots! Thanks for sharing.

Absolutely, John, thank you. I posted the photos at HDTV resolution, which is more than enough for a 4x6 print, since those are the two largest media a lot of K-3 owners are going to use for their high-ISO photos. While this does help the noise performance as Mike mentioned further down the thread, I think it's fair to assume people generally aren't going to be printing their ISO 40000 shots at 20x30 inches.
