Sony's Alpha DSLR-A700 (left) opts to blur away the noise in this shot at ISO 3,200, while the Pentax K20D (right) blurs less and retains more finer detail. You can always set the K20D to blur more if you prefer that, but I like having the option of leaving out the blur.

One of the things I love about New York City is the innovative grafitti you find even while walking around a fancy neighborhood like SoHo. Even at ISO 400, images are nearly noise free. This particular shot could have been sharper though, but the Shake Reduction just couldn't keep up with the nearly three stop slower than normal shutter speed.

This shot is well exposed, but the frame I shot before it came out underexposed. I notched the exposure compensation up to +0.7 to set things straight. Granted, this is a confusing scene for a camera, but it's just the kind of shot that Nikon's 3D Color Matrix Metering II would recognize and expose properly.

Technically, the colors reproduced by the K20D aren't quite as accurate as some of its competitors. For example, the pinkish lights seen here on the ferris wheel in the Times Square Toys 'R Us store are actually more red than this, but the result is still very pleasing.
