Surely "Manual" should be included as one of the modes ?

An error I think in the write up.

The high ISO files look good. 3200 will be worry free for weddings Smile But lets see the RAW's as well.

I am about to switch from Pentax K5 (for various reasons. least of which is image quality).

I would really love to know if anyone has an opinion on how the RAW image compares at something like ISO 25600 and if its worth the upgrade.
So far, I've seen tests with Nikon D600 and Canon 5DMkIII being far superior, and other tests where the A99 is just as good or better. So I'm getting somewhat confused. Smile

Will the tighter/smaller pixels on the 24MP full frame result in just as noisy images as the 16MP cropped sensor?
