Some surprising results, imo.

Unsurprisingly, the Phase 1 at ISO35 with off-camera processing looks better than the 645z. It's kinda hard to compare the Pentax results with the other two, since 1) it is not using an equivalent FOV lens (the Nikon and Sony are using 85mms, while the Pentax is a 70mm equivalent, and the crop sizes are different due to the difference in sensor size. Looking at a pixel by pixel basis, both FF cameras appear sharper than the 645z, but if you compare areas of the photo normalized against each other, there is clearly more detail in the Z shot than in the FF (look a the details in the antique print right center). Once normalized to the same relative size, it looks quite a bit sharper.

What I'd really like to see is a 645z raw at ISO100 next to the PhaseOne raw at ISO100 to get an idea of the true differences in perofrmance between the crop 645 sensor of the Z and the FF 645 of the PhaseOne. I'd also like to know what the lens(Schneider?) and shutter speed are on the PhaseOne. IS ISO35 usable for anything other than still lifes/landscapes without massive strobes?
