even the fluoro red dragon fly the k5 would have made a mess of it with poor red channel blowout.

I'm not getting into the whole DSLR v superzoom debate, Don - as I've said elsewhere in this thread they both have their strengths and weaknesses. However, I can assure you that my K-5 doesn't blow reds as long as I expose it properly by using the RGB histogram to warn of channel clipping. That would make the base file look dark but the low-noise sensor on the K-5 makes bringing things up dead simple.

Can't help myself
