No alias: Pentax K-1 Pixel Shift shows impressive early results: Digital Photography Review

dpreview published their studio test (using the wrong lens FA77 is great but not for ultimate sharpness especially corners). The good news is it looks at least half a stop better at high iso as the d810.
But if you look at the center areas, the pixel shift image seems to even beat the 645Z!

Pentax needs to hurry up and deliver a FF 645 version with pixel shift

The 810 doesn't belong with the other three based on those samples.

"D810 users will mourn the loss of it's beautiful and vibrant colour noise when switching to the K-1"...

I may be stupid, I get the improvement without PS, but for the test with PS, how offen do you guy plan to use pixel shift at iso 51200 when you already need tripod and stationnary subject ?

This make only sense on review and test to show how impressive this is. In everyday shooting, you will use pixel shift at iso 100. In theses conditions, D810 users are going to use their lower base iso at advantage meaning it is basically a draw for noise. Sure we still gain sharpness, for thoses 100" print were you stare with a manifying glass but the rest of the time? D810 is 300dpi at A2 (16x24") and 150dpi at A0 (32x48")... Except if you crop (and that defeat the idea of pixel shift carefully taken on tripod...) you will not really need it.

I still would appreciate the gain without pixel shift stated here. I didn't find it honestly when dowloading the raw from imaging resources and comparing so... I guess we need more comparison, more feedback from users before we can conclude.

Not that I care much to compare K1 to D810, it is more interresting to compare it to 645Z and K3 as I don't get why I should buy a D810 ???
