Default Quick Comparsion FZ35-FZ100-E620

FZ35 w/ TC-E17ED attached at 900mm eqivalent:

e620 equivalent 600mm:


E620 equivalent 1200mm REMOVED from comparision: This was an OOF photo that was in question as the Auto Focus on the Olympus E620 will not work with the TC E20 Teleconverter and the 70-300 Oly lens...I mistakenly thought it would Auto Focus...it will not...it MUST be manually focused to work properly which defeats the whole purpose of this comparision for favorable telezoom setups...similar to the 1.4 Canon TC and the 100-400 as it won't AF either...


FZ100 24X Zoom equivalent at 14Mp?:

I agree Clint maybe could haveadded +1 on Exposure...but IQ is definitely better on the FZ35...I just bought a used one off B&H and it was like new for $225...bang for the buck there's not much gonna touch it up to the DSLR's...

I have to admit the the fz35 looks very good, just ahead of the fz100, still think that the fz100 is good for the mos sensor though.

Yes I agree Scooby...for a MOS Sensor not bad...

Clint I figured out why the FZ35 photo was darker! I forgot I had set the FZ35 on Spot Metering and when it saw that white sign it underexposed the photo and it still looks better than the other photos!

Spot metering makes a big difference. Metering the on the sign as opposed to metering on the crepe myrtle would make it darker.
Have you tried the Auto Bracket

Once again, excellent proof that the FZ-35 is a real performer.

I too find the FZ35 shot to be superior than all others. And for those who believe/claim that ALL DSLRs will outperform any P&S, this comparison just proves that is not so as the E620 shots are the worst of the series (irregardless of the reach).

Bang for the Buck...the FZ35 is probably the top camera in the world...the 7D and the 100-400 will beat it in IQ, but for $2400+ they should...
