I own a copy of this lens, it's very good with fast auto-focus. Anyone that want sample pictures should ask seller for them.

I would look for q7/Q-s1 for the higher quality sensor. 01/06 lenses are good for low light. 02 lens can autofocus during video on q-s1.

If you want to delver deeper into post-processsing to obtain more image quality, I would recommend Lightroom 6 (standalone) for its ease of use. If you shoot RAW, post-processing can literally breathe new life into old captures you have.

I found all the camera upgrades I did gave me significantly more image quality than the cameras replaced.

K100D -> Kx, more resolving power I could get from my FA*400mm lens.

Kx -> K30, more malleability in the files from 16mp sensor.

K30 -> K-S2, higher resolution due to AA filter-less 20mp sensor.

If you have good lenses, newer better sensors will be able to extract more image quality from those lenses.

Thanks JPT for the nice write up, and monochrome for the explanation. 50% success rate is what I would have hoped for. Ricoh seems to be leading in pixel shift technology and may gain some customers from sigma/foveon camp. Pretty clever of Ricoh engineers to utilize ibis information to combine images.

I was curious about the subject Ian raised, and this is what I found on the web:

Fundamentals of Image Sensor Performance

Figure 2.2 in section 1.4 seems to be the structure Ian was referring to. Second stage Vout voltage level
will vary with the voltage level of Vphoto of the photodiode, hence the term "source follower".

I assume you are joking? Obviously pixel shift cannot be applied to subjects that has any kind of movement.

When I say fast I meant fast focusing. None of your lenses in Pentax mount have fast focusing motor
designed for action. If you want fast focusing, you also need to invest in lenses with fast focusing motors.

How do you compare AF between XT-2 and K3ii? You do not have any fast focusing lens in the Pentax mount.

A7 II is 24 MP, has been out in the market for a while for $1100, but it's not comparable to K-1 which is 36 MP.

I'm guessing with more processing power from CPU, they can improve the motion compensation aspect of pixel shift.

To keep its existing compact size and lens design for same price segment, easiest would be to use the sensor in KP for new GR.

If they were to design FF version of GR, the size and cost would increase and make it less desirable to some people.

Assuming the 500mm lens is SMC and in good condition both cosmetically and optically, it could fetch $350 USD. That was the price I sold mine for few years ago.
