Using a tripod in place of the table would have resulted in sharper photos.

Sarah,
Could you shed more light on why is tripod better?
I understand that Tripod is more versatile than a table.
Since table doesn't move at all, it serves as a anti-shake platform.
Are you referring to angle that tripod provides could have better sharpness?
Thanks

Yes that would have been preferably but i just could not pack a tripod. Not sure if i used 2 sec self timer, that might have helped a bit.

All the pictures from FZ100 are brighter, more detailed and I like them better than FZ35.

Ya, FZ35 PIX show as more saturated (rich?), but there is noticeably more detail in the FZ100 PIXes. I suspect that FZ35's built in "Neat Image" is taking out some detail.

It depends what you want in a PIX. Extra sharp is not always the best choice, but it easy to un-sharpen an image.

A possibility would be to retry the comparisons in such a way as to see if the cameras can be set to produce similar results (eg, set FZ35 noise reduction to minimum and increment FZ100 saturation to maximum).

The exposure on the FZ35 pictures is down 1/3 which explains why they're darker. I'd challenge whether there's more detail in the FZ100 pics - I can't see anything obvious - but from some pixel peeping I have noticed that the jpeg compression on the FZ100 shots looks much cleaner which might also explain the sharper results.

I'd like to see a couple of comparison shots done in RAW and posted here as PNGs for a really clean comparison.
