Pentax K-7 vs. Canon EOS 50D

Pentax K-7 (RAW)
Canon EOS 50D (RAW)
4.0MB JPEG (4672 x 3104)
4.4 MB JPEG (4752 x 3168)

Both cameras gain a small amount of extra detail through RAW processing in Adobe ACR but the difference is just a tad more visible on the EOS 50D. Again, you'd need to zoom in to a 100% view to spot the difference though.
