Re: K3: ISO 8000

Dale, the reviewers (and others) who say the noise level of the K-3 above ISO 3200 is "unacceptable" must be DRUNK when they look at the pictures, or something. Personally, I've not shot mine above ISO 1600, as I'm NA (noise adverse)  But although there is a noticeable level of grain in those pictures, it's NOT bothersome at all, and frankly I think they look great!

Considering you were shooting FAST MOTION, INDOORS, at only 1/325th of a second, and still managed to get that kind of quality at ISO 8000, well, I'd like to see MOST other cameras come even CLOSE! Heck, in the last shot you can almost tell what color his one visible eye is!

Great job, and thanks for sharing!

A word is worth 1/1000th of a picture... Maybe that's why I use so many words!
