A workaround might also be avoiding these shutter speeds. One could argue that the K-3iii does not directly support electronic shutter, and it's not certain they'll add that feature in a future firmware (they did that for the K-1); but there are alternatives.

Then best to leave the shot in as is....so the regular user will also know what shutter speeds to avoid. Take it out of the studio comparison and the masses may not notice so not pick up on the "workaround" you suggest

First, that wasn't what they did for the D780.

And it may not be what they do for the Pentax final review.

I don't think they first published the shutter shock affected images for the D780.

I don't think they were allowed to even post/take images per agreements with Nikon before release. That's often the case were folks get a "body under conditions" before release. So there were no studio scene shots to include in the comparison tool prior to getting a body for review

Red herring. They modified the test procedure so the studio scene samples won't be affected by shutter shock.

Second, there's a serious downside: DPReview would hide the K-3iii's maximum image quality (that is, its image quality in good light at ISO 100).

Are you suggesting a review site should hide potential downsides?

An interesting accusation, as a response to me asking they'd treat the K3-iii the same as the other cameras.

So far...they have treated it the same IMO. After all, D780 took a big shutter shock hit in the review. If history is any indication...I suspect the Pentax body will be treated no different

Yet the K-3iii's studio scene samples were left affected by the shutter shock issue.

"Yes" and "no" are not the same.

The place to tell us which shutter speeds to avoid is in the review,

And they might do that...we'll have to see

What I'd like to see is fairness.

Ones impression of fairness might not always be objective. That's natural. So far I think they are very consistent across brands...which I see as being fair.... but I'm comparing to many other sites so may have a different "impression"

I'm making an objective observation about their inconsistence in how they treated the K-3iii's shutter shock issue.
