So I bought a Panasonic FZ200 a few months ago, and the other day I was finally able to test it out for its intended purpose at Trudeau Airport in Montreal. The results concern me. I took very similar shots with both my Pentax K-5 and the FZ200. I am posting them so you can see what I am concerned about. What I hope to learn is if these grainy results are the result of some correctable error, or if this is just the way it goes, or worse, that maybe I have a bad FZ200 copy. Please enlarge each...

I'm primarily a Canon user but recently got a Pentax k5 added to my arsenal. I already owned a Sigma Mini-Wide II Multi-Coated 28mm f/2.8 lens and been using it on my k5 and I'm reading about the Ricoh pin. Its a rounded head, no issues going on the body or coming off from what I experienced so far...is it safe?
