I thought I'd post this shot and a 100% crop taken with an FZ50 which was posted at the Leica forum. Take a look for yourselves - I was pretty impressed with the detail and so were quiet a few on the forum:

I am astonished by the large differences of quality in shots from FZ50 (which I d really wish to be a great cam, for iwant to upgrade my 20).

Nice link from the same forum, FZ50 vs LX2

Hi Francesco

My friend I was thinking exactly the samething when i saw that shot - the detail it shows is excellent and of a completely different order to other FZ50 shots posted here and elsewhere, and easily better than the offical sample pics. It does make me think if there is a quality issue somewhere - whether its the lens or firmware I don;t know. What will be interesting are the samples from the Leica version of the FZ50 and if that consistently produces images as good as the ones posted above. Then we'd know that there is a quality issue with the '50.

Cheers

My guess is that, the differences in all these tests is more how the camera was used, the circumstances and conditions under which the shot was taken and the skill of the photographer then a problem with the cameras.

That is the most detailed photo I've see yet with a FZ50. I noticed on the origional post that it was ISO + Flash. Could the flash have made a difference somehow? That could keep noisedown and maybe there is a different NR setting when you use flash.

My V-LUX 1 is due to ship Oct. 26-30th. Maybe we can tell something then. I bought a used Oly fl50 on e-bay yesterday for $250.00. It was said it was in perfect working shape with only one scratch on it. I just hope that's true

hi Harj
i was a tad surprised too
but that said, when light is good, no noise should exist
lets see how he goes when hes more ambitious
and posts some daylight shots whitch he is sure to be pressed to do
