As mentioned by someone, it´s only serious limitation is that it doesn't make good pictures at night or in the dusk. It definitely needs light.

I would love to know

Is that.....

  • a problem an inherent function of noise - such that dark areas are always full of false signalling pixels whatever the sensor setting
  • or is it just no good at 1600asa - in which case using low sensor iso and a tripod will fix it - just as we used to use in the days of Kodak 200asa

Yes, low ISO fixes it.  The sensor isn't up to modern standards for higher ISOs.  The K-5 was about the first model with decent modern ISO performance.
