Default Nikon Coolpix 5400 Sample, need pro opinion

first, http://bermangraphics.com/coolpix/5400/5400.htm

Second, http://digitalcamera.impress.co.jp/03_07/toku2/

In my newbie opinion.
5400 has better colors, but is soft has less contrast and , G5 is sharper and less noisy, however, chromatic aberration is still high.

5400's noise kind of scares me :shock: , pictures seem off fucus (badly)! :? and I don't believe they repeat the same mistakes :idea:

Maybe the focus does not work well!!!
:evil: :evil: :evil:

Need your opinion

Default Check these side by side shots

The text is Japanese.

The 5400 shots are pretty impressive, as are the G5

I am just an amatuer but that noise/focus does not look good at all, maybe there is something wrong with the camera? My 5400 has not yet arrived but if it has some fundemental design floors then I am cancelling the order and going with a 5700, the Olym 5050 looks like a very high quality camera as well.

Any advise out there?

I think that you are better off with the Olympus C5050Z myself.

The reason I went with the 5400 was because a number of the reviews said the 5050Z had excessive Chromatic Abberations and higher then normal noise??, but I would rather have that then poor photo quality, at least I can somewhat control CA's and noise where as focus/photo quality is something I can do nothing about. I am maybe wondering if the 5400's are still pre-production and that is the reason for the unacceptable results? I am starting to think I have made a mistake in selecting the 5400 over maybe the 5700 or 5050z though.
