    Pentax K-x low light noise performance

    http://www.1001noisycameras.com/2010...sensor-do.html

    The results are EYE OPENING in terms of low-light noise and dynamic range.
    So... how do the AP K-x users find the low light performance on the K-x?

    I've never really tested it as such but having said that have had very little noise in any of my shots.
    I have never had to use the noise reduction thingy in Lightroom , even when I've taken indoor shots with out using the flash.
    Mind you as my only other experience is point and shoot I don't have anything to compare too.
    Cheers Garry

    Haven't got one yet, but one of the reasons the K-x is in my sights as my first DSLR is because of the low light performance.

    K-x rocks!

    http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canoneos550d/page14.asp

    Canon EOS 550D vs. Nikon D5000, Pentax K-x and Canon EOS 500D

    The real star of this comparison is the Pentax K-x though, which at its default NR setting delivers an impressive amount of detail right up to ISO 12800.
