Okay, let's see, comparing the EXIF data we find:

FZ-1
f/2.8
ISO 100
Spot metering
-.3 EV

KM 5D
f/5.6
ISO 400
Pattern metering
+.3 EV

Maybe a more accurate test would be appropriate



Well, if the FZ was at ISO 400 it would need ~2 stops slower aperture, around f5.6 and the FZ always tends to overexpose;-) And this was "kit" lens to "kit" lens if you will.



Besides, it wasn't really a test but more an interesting comparison that shows that the little FZ can still make nice photo's. The KM is overall a much better tool, which was simply not applied to the extent that the FZ was when comparing these two shots. Given an equal lens the KM will get more quality shots than the FZ in varying conditions.



The point…simply that the FZ cam produce good pictures even compared to a DSLR in the wrong hands (mine LOL).
