    an interesting comparison though I'm sure people might be watching the video for other reasons ........
    because the comparison was made, I'm curious, does anyone really shoot at 12800 iso other than just for testing?

    Many sports togs would if needed under lights. Don't think it would look too good on a crop body except as a small b&w news print. Of course the D3S still looks pretty good at ISO12800

    And the answer is .... The K-5 !! Faster frame rate, higher top end ISO (51,200) etc.

    7D and D7000 aren't really in the same class
    or price range
    There's a bit too much focus on video in today's photographer tho I think.
    oh well.

    Interesting comment about the levels.
    I wonder if there is a site to know for each Nikon the corresponding Canon that we can compare with.

    Pentax has had a long drought since being able to have some bragging rights - 2010 with the 645D and the K-5 is definitely a big year for Pentax.
    Even over on POTN there is a bit of chat about the K-5 have more DR than the 1DIV and 5DII. A lot of of WT? and amazement.
    Having shot Pentax since the 70's its all a bit of fun.

    Just because it goes to 11 on the ISO dial doesn't mean that it's a better performer in low light.

    I'll add to that, Just because it has a Nikon or Canon badge on it doesn't mean it's a better performer.....

    Here is an interesting site which compares cameras :

    I don't know how accurate it is but have fun then get out and shoot photographs.

    I wouldnt even bother or dare shooting above 6400ISO on any APSC sensor for any type of work unless its a little photo in a newspaper. Only for fun and personal use.

    Ok, this is a thread I read with great interest only to finish as blind as when I started.
    20yrs ago I owned a Pentax K1000 and a Minolta 7000Dynax (still own and they still work).
    Today I own a Canon G12.
    If I want to take the plunge and purchase a dslr that will bring me happiness for the next 10-20 yrs what would I go for?
    Nikon d7000? Canon d7? Pentax k5?
    It's not easy to make a decision, hence the reason for reading these threads.
    I love macro, scenery shots and the odd portrait.
    Which way to go?

    They are all exellent cameras. The best way to decide is to read about about them on popular and well respected test sites, like DP Review etc and then go and try them for yourself. Find out what features that are important to you as one model may be better than the other in that particular aspect and the other main thing is to see how easy they are to use/operate and how easy they are to understand as this is what really can make a difference. If you find the camera difficult to operate or understand how to use it, you will miss shots ot just give up and then start to not take your camera with you. Some camera brands are just easier to use for some and not others and visa versa.

    Also, you are buying into a system, so if you plam to expand and really delve into photography, you will want to make sure that system has what you require in order to get into it.
