Lets see your D7000 or K5 low light 1/5s ISO 1600 shot with significant less noise and smearing. put your photo where your mouth is.

I give you, ISO6400. I tried to emulate your scenario but this is the best I can do @ 3am with a lightbulb. For fun, I used my old Pentax SMCA 50mm f2 at f2.8

Yeah, even at ISO 6400 it holds more detail than 60D's ISO 1600... with a very old lens. Yeah there is noise but yeah, ISO 6400.

I own a K-5 and even I'm impressed at the balance of noise vs detail retention in this K-5II shot at ISO6400. Nice color saturation too at that ISO.  That seems like a pretty good demonstration shot. Shame there wasn't also a new box of Crayons available at 3:00AM !
