I just checked it, yep the K5 was the sharpest of the bunch with the Queen of Hearts

Yep, but we shoudn't read too much into this because (a) the K-5 image was taken at f/9 instead of f/8 for the others so the DoF will be higher, and (b) as Spyros pointed out the K-5 focusing looks to have a very small amount of back-focus (see focus check)

Both these factors would favour the K-5 for subjects near the back wall (like the playing card).

I think we have to ignore observations which are at the front and rear of the scene. Trouble is the perspective can be confusing.
