Pentax boldly going where only Nikon have before by offering us ultra high ISO settings. It's what we photographers have always dreamed of - an option to produce pictures that are more noise than image. It didn't take a huge feat of technology, just a marketing department with the cojones to point out the possibility.

I feel these people are working on their CVs to get a job in the White House as I type.
