Travel-zoom test - Samsung
Stranger things have happened on review sites
Guess it's down to taste really..can't say I share the sentiments about great IQ either.
Don't browse around Flickr either..you'll be in for a shock.
Casio didn't hang around slapping the gold award up either on their site. Still on balance it's probably more deserving of the award.
Both models are using fairly heavy NR and pretty strong sharpening though the Casio is probably doing better than the Samsung.
