Re: no reason to upgrade so far

As far as I am concerned, the interesting aspect is to understand the benefit/trade off of the AA-filter less sensor. The D800 has the same pixel pitch as the K-5, and if you look that the Pixel level DXO Mark (not the 8Mpx print), you find that the pixel level results are essentially the same between the D800 and the K-5. So effectively the D800 is a full frame size K-5.

Sure, having more resolution brings it own advantages, but essentially what you're looking at on the pixel level will be very similar. So I don't think we have seen the new major jump in sensor technology yet that the 16Mpix Sony sensor has given us...

So, to your point, yes the K-5 is still a top notch camera with one of the best (if not the best) APS-C sensor on the market today for per pixel quality, notwithstanding of the AA filter or AA filter less option...
