Pentax K1: Unrivalled Image Quality in SuperRes Pixel Shift Mode

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

UPDATE 02 July: I present the full resolution image in my in depth review of the Pentax K1 in:

Pentax K1 SuperRes Pixel Shift Mode: Golden Trout Closeup

For this shot, I battled wind, depth of field, dull overcast lighting and difficulty in getting close enough with a 28mm lens, not to mention trying to shoot on mushy snow and get the tripod just-so.

I desired a Pentax K1 SuperRes pixel shift mode shot of this Golden Trout with every last speckle captured. Lighting was dull overcast blah, but with spattering rain and thunder, I made the best image I could manage under the conditions.

While the Pentax K1 SuperRes pixel shift mode has strict limits on what can be shot (no motion allowed), the quality of this image simply cannot be obtained by any other 35mm digital camera on the market today: not Nikon, not Canon, not Sony. And IMO, few if any medium format cameras could have done better. I am speaking to the noise, accuracy of subtle color detail down to the pixel level, resolution, and pixel acuity that results from the elimination of Bayer matrix demosaicing. My only gripe: I want 50-70 megapixels with pixel shift. Sony?

Image presented in DCI-P3 color space which mostly preserves the deep rich red color.
