Re: Canon 5D, 5D2, 7D vs Pentax K5 noise and DR comparision

At ISO 1600 the K 5 performs like any other modern APS-C in the whole range

That's not very accurate. It produces a similar SNR across the ranges covered by other APS-C cameras, but the the dynamic range at 1600 is at least 2 stops better than competing APS-C cameras. This is surely nothing to sniff at and should be mentioned. The summary statement about ISO 1600 performance misleads the reader into thinking that the K-5 has no advantage over the 7D.
