A simple test of K-3 JPEG BEST/GOOD

Hi!

I've read on the Internet some doubts about the Pentax JPEG engine in general. At the same time I've got tired of JPEG's the size of RAW's (almost), so I decided to make a simple experiment.

Below is BEST quality:

1/60th, f7.1, ISO 100, BEST quality

I honestly can't see any difference even at 100%. Hopefully EXIF is preserved.

Anybody care to comment? What use is any higher setting than GOOD?
