I forgot to mention that Pentax color in JPG is far better than Nikon color, for my taste.

Oh that's easy... The entire affair started when DPReview posted horrible images from the K-5, which was then compounded by Imaging Resource following suite with none other than equally poor images from the K-5. Now take that, and factor in that these are two of the most influential digital camera review sites on the internet and you have yourself an answer.
Now, that's indeed an interesting coincidence!
Focus "problems" in the DPR series, and forgot 5.6 (instead of 8) aperture on IR (I have a DNG from the first publication, and a comparison between the two shots shows ALSO a slight back-focusing problem).
My first thought has been: the usual "not perfectly focusing" Pentax... But apparently they don't rely on autofocus and double check to find the best series... again.
As a side note: both sites have changed the pictures originally posted. Bud DIDN'T clearly state that. [edit] Ok, they are private sites, but being (and knowing to be) the most regarded ones, a news title apologizing for the inconvenience would have been fair. [/edit]
Be aware: I'm the last one on earth to think of conspiracy. Nonetheless the coincidence is... alarming; at least on the ability and credibility of those reviewers...
