But if you're talking about that tuft of hair on the back of the
doll's head, then look at f/8 - there, it's unsharp. Either the AF
of the lenses or the tester picked totally different focus points
for each image. It makes it difficult to compare sharpness. What
really surprised me was how much contrast and sharpness the Sigma
has and also the huge difference in color temp. Unless of course
AWB was selected... ?

Sorry, I should have use a tripod and manual focus when performing such comparison. But the original intention of the DA16-45 pictures is just to see the differences of the apeture value.

I have tried postprocess the raw file to match the WB between the two lenses, and the sigma definitly produces better result (better saturation and contrast)

I personally don't like the Sigma colors at all. I think the Pentax
looks great.

Yes, the Sigma is on the warm side, but the DA16-45 is also on the cool side comparing to the real life OR maybe my monitor is just not calibrated well
