Looking forward to the K-01 DxO sensor tests...

It wouldn't be unreasonable to speculate that it will equal or better the K-5.... meaning:

The Top 10 on DxO would comprise of:

4 x Nikon
3 x Pentax
2 x Phase One
1 x Sony

And the K-01 would be the cheapest top 10 camera. Hope it transpires this way, as it would be quite an achievement.

How could it rate better than the K-5 if it is the same sensor?

Part of the reasons the K-5 beats the D7000 is the extended ISO 80, the K-01 is missing this as well is only 12bit and not 14bit images, so it's very unlikely to score that well on the DxO charts in comparison, and I would be willing to bet on a lesser score than the K-5.

Interesting. Does the new "M" engine have any bearing on this?

True, but it also has a tweaked processor that is supposed to be faster. Not sure how those factors will interplay in the mix when tested but I too am interested in what the results are when its tested.

My guess is also lower then K-5/D7000. So 78 points would be great.
