For instance, DPR says K-5 has better IQ than D800!???????

And whats the problem there?

The K-5 uses the same sensor tech as that in the D800, (with some custom high ISO NR in the imaging pipeline), so at the pixel level it IS the same or better than the D800.

Of course the D800 has a larger sensor so will have the better IQ when looking at a print or resized image but thats not what DPR have been measuring in their reviews.
