Amazing how it compares to the 5D MarkIII and D600. Hardly any noticeable differences .

Yep it's pretty amazing. You are on the money, you literally can't tell a difference. I can only imagine what a pentax FF would be capable of. I think this is why pentax isn't in such a hurry to release one, the new K5 is well capable enough to hold the market, especially at such a low price for the feature set. I've seen a few pentax interviews where they hint about FF, I don't expect them of all brands to show their hand. I for one will be feeding my new IIs nothing but FF lenses, buying DA glass would be a waste if you plan on buying FF eventually.

Upon further investigation I'm afraid I'd have to recant my statement.

I have no idea what DPReview considers RAW in their studio comparison tool but its nowhere near what the RAW files look like in most default developers I could find. At any rate, here's what I found using Raw Therapee without any special processing(default).
