Fifty new full-size Pentax K7 samples (DNG too) added by IR

Imaging Resource has been busy in their labs! Today they have added roughly 50 new sample pictures in their samples page. The samples are available as full-size JPEGs and a number of them also as DNG. Today's update is their "still life" set, the scene with the Crayons, vinegar, coffee cup, spices, threads and such. Different variables are adjusted in each subset of pictures, including of course the ISO (100 to 6400) and NR (four settings).
