Does anyone know what lens was used for this test? Wouldn't the lens used have a pretty big effect on sharpness at any ISO?

DPR uses a DFA-50mm Macro set at f/8 (arguably one of the sharpest lens/aperture combo currently available off-the-shelf). Conversely, the D800 shots are taken with a 85mm 1.8 set at f/11. DOF shouldn't be an issue at this setting in theory. Regardless, it doesn't make the K-30 any worse if the FF are at a slight disadvantage wrt DOF (though I have my doubts at f/11 that the background is out of focus), it still looks pretty good to me.

I love my K-30 and it's nice to see it perform so well in this test.
