Oh Dear! :-(

If those are meant to demonstrate the high quality from the new SD1 - they have failed miserably. I respect LM's judgement on how he found the SD1 image files when printing, so seeing such as these examples demonstrates that it will be the photographer AND the choice of lenses that will determine whether the SD1 gets what should be a fair assessment.

These samples are, to my mind, pretty awful to be honest. They don't even come anywhere near what I have been producing with the SD9 and SD14 for a number of years (with the original FF film camera lenses, i.e. 15-30EX and 24-70EX) and I am sure the SD1 will be capable of far better results "in the right hands" and as said - WITH the right lenses too.

I agree also (as mentioned in a couple of replies) the strange sky-area streaking in the first shot with the barbed wire is hardly going to produce good comments.
