Re: Noise compared

I too have been considering a new camera for the improvements in noise at high ISO.  When using DPReview's image comparison tool, I can see very little difference in noise between the K1, K-70 and KP at high ISO.  The KP is class-leading in that regard from what I can tell.  I've used the K1 quite a bit and it's a nice camera, but unless you're printing large I don't think any small advantage in noise is going to be very noticeable.  Also, the size and weight is a bit much if you don't really need the extra resolution.

Personally, I'm debating between the KP and the k70, which appear almost the same in regards to noise. I'm trying to determine if the couple hundred dollars more for the KP is giving me something I need.
