SX40comparedFZ150 handheld full zooms 10-50yds

Condor requested some comparison shots, so here are a few. Program mode, full optical zoom, ISO 100, handheld, SOOC at camera defaults, so not perfectly matched. Particular caution about the 50yd samples, as in my haste I shot the SX40 in spot metering while the FZ150 was still in center-weighted. 10, 20, 30, and 50 yards distance. 100%crops in gallery.
cheers.

Hmm, now that I stick the cropped images in here, I see that my cropping to roughly the same content makes it appear in the reduced images that the subjects were the same size, when of course the longer zoom on the SX40 made the same subject span more pixels. Should be apparent on closer examination.

Oops, see that I put a 400 iso shot in at 50 yds for the SX. fixing now.
