I'm not sure about trees, since these do not really exhibit repeating patterns, do they? Man made patterns for sure though.

As fine detail will be considerably better micro contrast will be higher not lower.

Because less sharpening is required high ISO performance will be improved.

Indeed, noise will not be sharpened and as such become less visible. It will still be there though.

Personally I'd think twice about using it for landscape at least wait to see some examples as how bad it is depends directly on resolution.

This is certainly a camera that will not sell on specs, but rather on real life results.

For me it as if Pentax have built a custom unit just for my shooting

Same for me...
