Image quality is splitting hairs at best. And that's a pretty far way around the barn, i.e. lots of money and performance sacrifices for potentially little if any IQ improvements.

I think you're right. If I had to guess, I'd say that were approaching a limit on the 16mp sensors as we find camera's like the K-01 to be more of a fine tuned version of the K-5 in terms of final IQ.

Having said that, I hope I'm mistaken on the X Pro 1 in terms of this because I truly have a soft spot for Fuji and the potential for new sensor technology. And so I'm hoping that it is the RAW converters that aren't up to the task of translating the RAW data and not the sensor itself.

Anyways, I'm really rooting Pentax given that they all they need to deliver the goods with their upcoming K-3 this year. ie. another top performing(resolution, color, DR) APS-C from which every other manufacturer will compare with.

And who knows, the K-3 might be full frame! (Not that it matters at all!)
