Well, at theimage sizes posted, the lens quality seems very high. Otherwise, we'd be seeing some purple fringing in the areas where the tree limbs are against the bright, white sky.

The conditions you took the photos in, are the type of conditions you'll usually see this problem in.

:shock:Wow, those zoom examples were nice. You could see some noise in the purple pole baskin robbins zoom, I wonder what the full size image noise level would be.

I wonder if he was right in saying that the smaller sensor permits a larger dynamic range of the stabilization, and whether not being able to turn it off will be a problem.

looking forward to this one andcomparing it with the fz20 soon! :-)

As I can see from the manual (available for download from the Konica Minolta US site) the AS surely can be turned off. Here is the text from the manual:

Konica Manual (Pg 96)wrote:
Quote:
A thermometer indicator replaces the Anti-shake indicator when the camera is overheating because of high operating or ambient temperatures. When taking still images, the Anti-shake system is used only for the exposure. When taking movies, Anti-shake is canceled. Allow the camera to cool before using Anti-shake.

I wonder what is considered high ambient temperatures?? I do a lot ofshooting in Vega$andit gets toasty there.
