Since the blur was caused by shutter shock, DPR was correct to criticize this blur in its studio shots.

Was it? The studio shots are meant to show the camera's best image quality, in a way that's directly comparable with other cameras. Yet if you don't meet certain conditions (which might include the camera support)…

Read the D780's review; they found shutter shock there, too - and much uglier IMHO. But they did their best to provide studio shots free of shutter shock:

This was a first look not a review and they are investigating. I'm sure they will do there best to provide studio shots free of shutter shock...for the actual review comparison if it's possible. May not be possible ....as we are not sure yet the cause of the issue

Of course it's possible, they even provided a possible temporary workaround themselves: extract a frame from a pixel shift shot to use ES.

But a casual user opening the comparison tool and selecting K3III has no idea that he's watching a "first look".

Which leads to this kind of reaction : https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/65228245
