The whole point is that you can't. The Nokia is a Zeiss designed lens. You think that a better lens on the Nokia would match the Pentax and put all the MF manufacturers out of business?

Of course not.  There are other things that distinguish the cameras, such as a bigger sensor area on the MF for less noise, the ability to change lenses, have a lens hood, control flashes, etc.

The sample you show is certainly not the best the Nokia can do.  I've downloaded full 40MP JPEGs that were much sharper and less washed-out looking than the one you showed here, and you're showing features in the Nokia comprising far less pixels than they do in the Pentax; a flawed comparison.  The Pentax should have used a focal length at a ratio to the Nokia's, the same as the pixel pitch ratio.

You are basically saying that if an Yugo can run as fast as a Porsche, it ... can run as fast as a Porsche.

This is getting off-topic.

It's getting dishonest, too, as this Nokia performance is abysmal ... for a Nokia.
