Pentax K100D vs. Canon EOS 350D (Rebel XT)

Pentax K100D (RAW)
Canon EOS 350D (RAW)
1,945 KB JPEG (3008 x 2000)
2,517 KB JPEG (3456 x 2304)

Using the same high quality image processor (Adobe Camera RAW) we get a much closer result between the eight megapixel and six megapixel cameras, while it is possible to pick out some details in the EOS 350D image which aren't quite as well defined in the K100D image it would as previously noted be very difficult to see these even in a large print.
