K-5 IQ terrible?

I know this is going to rub some people off, but a few months ago, Klaus (photozone owner) statement here was posted about K-5 being the best camera in 2010 (that was before the samples were posted).

Now that he got the camera, he isn't saying that glowing things. He is sending the camera back to replace AA filter (for 500 euros!!!)

First impressions:

The JPEG quality is terrible (in terms of pixel-level-sharpness).

The RAW quality is Okayish - 25% blur - which is significant. Based on these initial tests I'd conclude that it has a rather aggressive AA filter.

The max. LW/PH are barely higher than the ones of the K10D. So far for the fanboy criticism that I should have migrated earlier ...
