Certainly does improve the definition and clarity. The ISO >100,000 shots don't look very usable from those examples though.

The noise test should really be done against four stacked exposures without pixel shift. Right now we both have a ~2x lower noise (due to 4 exposures) and finer grain, due to the pixel shift.

Dpreview analyses pixel shift resolution too.

The details of the text is even clearer then 645Z Wow! But it also reveals the lens differences. For instance the Nikon lens have far less corner CA then the lens on K-1.

Ricoh needs to get some premium primes on the market to really take advantage of the resolution of pixel shift.

Or they could bundle these K-1's with DFA 100 Macro WR lenses when they know they are going to reviewers that will explicitly test the PS function...

Imaging Resource at least used a Sigma 70mm macro on the K-mount, Canon and Nikon. Much less an apples vs oranges comparison as in the DPReview test.

You would think that anyone looking to test resolution would automatically select a macro lens. A wonderful as the LTD glass renders, they not going to compete with modern designs for pure resolution.

I kind of got out of architectural photographer for architects and premium home builders when I sold my Contax 645. I think the K-1 with pixel shift and the right glass is going to be the perfect camera for interior and exterior architectural photography.
