And that's why you don't release many pre-release images

smooth color surface patterns/noise splashes (like 8-bit tonal transitions!), unsecure colors, contrast edges disaster, insufficient lenses (chromatic aberation, soft...)

Than compare with competition high ISO performance, speed and processing, price...
I wouldn´t buy it.

Why did you go find the worst possible samples, samples from a version of the firmware that existed long before they even got cameras out to shoot a handful of official prer-release photos?

These shots are of no use for judging anything, because we already know the camera can do better from other shots. The way to determine what you can get out of a camera is to try and find the best possible shots, determine what helped the technical quality, and proceed from there.

I mean I wouldn't buy the D3X either from its sample gallery as the landscape shot they had it in looked as mushy as your first photo link. But obviously the camera can do better than those images, and the same is true of the SD-1.

If you are serious about quality determination you should at least make a minimal effort to not come off as a troll seeking to post only the most negative possible things.
