Wow!
EDIT: Interesting to compare against the 5Dmk2 as well
EDIT: Also interesting to see the actual measured ISO of other manufacturers! Pentax seem to be closer to the actual rating

See you knew it was worth getting one. A new ironing board is a small price to pay

For DXO to have results like that it MUST be good .

Is it the same sensor that Nikon are using in their new D7000?

I know they use Sony sensors and seems bit of a coincidence to me

Although I have to say I don't believe a word they say on DXO because in the past they have always marked Pentax cameras down on purpose .... (according to the members on Pentaxforums.com)

I'd be curious to see how these figures translate into real world IQ.

Lol... Was going to say we don't have to keep repeating the mantra that dxo's results are meaningless in the real world any more!
