Hello JimBim

Hands down, the K5 picture looks not so good...but I wouldn not upset myself with a bad JPEG.

Look at the histograms: -> the K3 did overexposed !

also the left part of the histogram is wrong -> the black is not really black and the hole picture get a little 'flair'

the other cameras did not overexposed the scene where it's very important -> her face

I try to correct this:

Your original

and a exposure +colour correction:

ok it's useless to try to correct the WB on a JPEG picture...but I think it's still better than the original .

So...all in all... I would not compare the cameras with such get the wrong impression.

Than you kikivrany. You did nice job.

I'm shooting in RAW nearly every time with my K20 and istDL and process it in LR. In this case my aim was to see how jpg comes directly from camera without my intervention.
