Pentax 50mm f/2.8 Macro Aperture Series: Tiled Water Fountain (Pentax K1 SuperRes)

Pentax smc P-D FA 50mm f/2.8 Macro

See my Pentax K1 wish list at B&H Photo.

This medium distance scene evaluates the Pentax 50mm f/2.8 at a common shooting distance—does it hold its performance at this range as well as at close range?

SuperRes pixel shift mode (“SR-PSM”) of the Pentax K1 was used, for maximum image quality.

Images up to 28 megapixels with large crops, all from f/2.8 through f/9. This provides a detailed look at the “whole package” (lens and camera in SuperRes mode).

The Pentax K1 continues to impress—overall image quality is simply beyond what other DSLRs or mirrorless cameras can offer—fundamentally, they cannot, since images are all interpolated (demosaicing the RGGB sensor).

The resolution of grains of sand in the mortar and stonework, the reflective sheen on the tiles, the nuances of whitish water stain residues, the subtle detail in the brass faucet and so on: these details look more real than any conventional Bayer matrix sensor, which will smear away much of this detail.
