Nice grades for the K7. I find it interesting that in RAW mode high  
ISO, both the K7 and K20D perform as well as the NIkon D300, with the  
K20D leading the way by a small margin. Jpeg is another story as Canon  
and Nikon apply a lot of in-camera noise reduction, but the results  
are noticeably softer than the Pentax jpegs. Excellent resolution for  
the K7 as well.
