Canon did their homework - HS system/SX40
I downsized the SX40 - it would have been much more unfair to 'upres' the F31fd.
Then it is not a 100% crop of the sx40 then. You are being more fair to the f31 than you are to the sx40. I'd like to see a real 100% crop from the sx40 on that same image please.
With what you did, you are showing the sx40 is barely better than an old 6 MP camera! Your post did little good. Now post some reality.
