Excellent shots. The GF1 is a very capable camera. It only lacks image stabilization. The FZ pic looks over sharpened to me. Was sharpening done in camera or in PP?

I really don't remember - I'll pull up the original tonight and see.

Tullio, here's the original image straight out of the FZ, except resizing for posting purposes. Does it look better?

Definitely over-sharpened previously - the wing of the bird in the water in particular showed it. I think it's also worth reducing the sharpness in-camera if you always sharpen on the computer as well. If the camera creates a halo, any subsequent sharpening makes it much worse.

Hope you don't mind but I sharpened it a different way using my program. It's sort of a side-effect of the HDR process that it sharpens without suffering from halos as much as unsharp mask but there are other sharpening methods as well. The picture does show what a great camera the FZ is though given enough light. It's grey and gloomy here so I've given up on bird pics for now

Thanks, Martin. Is this using your "famous" HDR program? I should look into it... I've read many good things about it

This image was taken a while ago right after I got my FZ when I was still experimenting with settings and post processing. I probably over did it in PS.

The FZ can do much better than this if it had been a sunnier day....
