We've shot most of our test suite with the Pentax K20D, but have found the "hot pixels" some readers have reported with the camera, even at low ISOs.
We're awaiting word from Pentax as to whether a firmware fix is in the works, but in the meantime, have posted our Pentax K20D test images to date for your perusal. (The firmware fix should deal with the hot pixels, but other characteristics such as normal ISO noise, tonality, color accuracy, etc should all remain unchanged.)
We'll update our Pentax K20D review page if/when we get a firmware patch, but the images should still be useful for evaluating other aspects of image quality in the meantime.
