Re: Want to see a FF camera with huge noise?

Nonsense. You're saying that as S goes up, N also goes up. From this logic, S/N measures are meaningless.

I happen to like the way the K7 noise LOOKS. I think that will
become as important a factor as bokeh in the future, and Pentax is
ahead of the pack by paying attention to it now.

I like how the noise looks, too - still, a clean image with details is infinitely preferable to "the best noise available", because you can add any type of noise in PP.

By the way, the D300 also a film-like noise. So, Pentax is definitely not the first one paying such attention.
