Is it just me or the SX30 IS seems to have a distinctly heavy blue tint?

Clint- thank you for your effort, the pictures of FZ40 are sharper & more vivid.

Nice comparison. The SX30 does look colder/bluer. I like the saturation better on the FZ40 (which is good, since I just bought one!).

I also think the FZ40 has better color. I think the SX30 can be adjusted a bit more to remove the cold or blue tint. I just haven't found the right setting yet. I know the default setting was much more drab looking. Putting it in the "film" color helped.
