I've been critically evaluating as many K-x images as I can to evaluate it's performance and I would give it a 1 to 1.5 stop advantage over the K-7.

... whola! the [ISO 1600] image transformed into an absolutely stunning image with no discernible nosie, and I could not believe my eyes. I did not even need any NR as it looked fantastic at iso 1600. Just the default NR protocol in LR applied to the RAW file was sufficient. ... But, iso 1600 and iso3200 very fully usable with little NR and thanks to detail that was left, the image still looked non-plasticy.

Well, yes. But for those who live in not-so-luminous cities, the same LR+NR formula can be just as wondrously used at ISO 3200 and 6400 on the KX. There's the attraction, I suppose.
