well... at 50%, it is "crisp".
As I am manipulating many medium format images for my clients for 2 years now (I am a photographer + "young" graphic designer) I already forgot the impact of the anti-aliasing filter...
Finally a "good" sample to convince me even more to stay with my "old" A900 and wait for the next "affordable" medium format Pentax.
(or a competitor coming from the Sony/Hassy co-working :-)

just in case : 80% of the images included in this brochure are coming from digital backs : http://www.animations.citroen.fr/flipbookGuidefinancement/

It just needs a light sharpen. That's how dpreview usually present their photos. It's only f8 with focus on the near trees so the background isn't actually in focus.

Have a look at the first photo of the girl's face and tell me there is any detail lacking in her right eye. It's pretty remarkable.

After 10 years I stopped judging a sensor with a close-up portrait.
Even with my first 3 MP D30, I was blown away by the details in the hair at 100% !

Look at those 645D samples here and tell me if you agree with me about the typical anti-aliasing filter effect + obviously the ccd sensor in itself and its size:
> image in "Diffraction" section :

If you compare this shot with a D800E (+/- same resolution) here, you should react like me.
And this is even more surprising as Nikon offer precisely a E version body without the anti-aliasing filter effect in order to compete with the medium format world...

Actually I dream about an OMD with a medium format sensor... nothing more. Some rumors talk about a next Pentax without mirror.
