Pentax 100mm f/2.8 Macro Aperture Series: Burghers of Calais (Pentax K1 SuperRes)

Pentax smc D FA 100mm f/2.8 WR Macro

See my Pentax K1 wish list at B&H Photo. As this was published, the Pentax 100mm f/2.8 Macro is about $400 at 26% / $147 off.

This scene is an all-arounder: bokeh across the aperture range, sharpness and micro contrast, and color vs black and white from the K1.

Especially when viewed on the iMac 5K, the black and white image is jaw dropping in its contrast and superfine detail right down to the pixel—no conventional demosaicing here. This is very hard to do on metal like this. I think you will be impressed.

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

Pentax 100mm f/2.8 Macro Aperture Series: Burghers of Calais (Pentax K1 SuperRes, Color and B&W)

Presented in both color and black and white. Image sizes up to 28 megapixels along with large crops all in both color and B&W, and all from f/2.8 through f/13.

Is the Pentax K1 the finest black and white camera on the market (in SuperRes mode)? It seems so.
