High ISO performance?[edit]

Has the performance at high ISO been improved compared with K20D? There is no news on this and no mention of this in the wiki. Amphylite (talk) 02:30, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

The pre-release reviews were forbidden from including high-ISO shots, so there's no data on that yet. We'll see (and be able to update the article) when reviews come out. Matthew Miller (talk) 17:45, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

Interesting... that suggests that any improvements will likely be firmware-based rather than due to any changes in the hardware... Moxfyre (ǝɹʎℲxoɯ | contrib) 20:06, 25 May 2009 (UTC)
...or that the improvement is hardware-based and the firmware isn't yet optimized for it... Inconclusive, really. Wesbo (talk) 17:37, 29 May 2009 (UTC)

new feature?[edit]

The K-7 is listed as having "new features" not found on the K20d, but the "HDR" function is not really new. The K20d has a multiple exposure feature that, if it isn't exactly the same, is functionally the same. Perhaps this should be clarified or removed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 204.65.34.174 (talk) 19:36, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
