Well, the first sample was taken at ISO 200 and I can only see visible noise in the grey background and the subjects are soft and resolution is low:
(Warning: Very Large Original File!)
The second ISO 100 sample don't look better neither, noise is still there and the subject is not sharp:
The third sample is of ISO 800, now the subject is sharper but noise is very obvious and colour noise are all there:
Do note that the DA 35 prime was used this time and it just proves that the new kit lens is just junk! Or, the AF is not accurate with the kit lens. Either of the above two possibility is no good indeed!
The last one is with the DA 35 at ISO 200, I do find it is nothing special indeed:
After viewing these, I am afraid that the production K-7s are just making NO difference against those "pre-production" ones, for what the previous mediocre samples that have been shown! And, maybe even the K20D produces sharper pictures with less noise! And, I hate colour noise! (anyone will like?) Too bad..
I shall update more when the user or other new K-7 users upload more samples. I always hope that I am wrong for what I have seen and these are not real. But objectivity tells me that these are all TRUE!
Update (6-28): More sample photos by the new Japanese K-7 users uploaded!
1. ISO 3200 K-7 Vs K20D:
2. More high ISO samples (800 - 3200):
3. Other samples:
I write no further comment this time. I blog, you judge!
