wow this is wonderful! I saw you did the NR noise bracketing test with both cameras too   Kim has the weather cleared for that 30 sec long exposure starry night test?

BTW I dont know if you've tried to find the macro sweet spot yet, but I did some extensive testing with the HS20 and found that its spot is 5.0x zoom (using the LCD) at 1.5 inches focal distance, resulting in an image 38mm wide therefore a 1:6 macro ratio- just shy of my Oly C-7070 1:4 macro ratio (28mm image width.)  That makes it 5mm less than Fuji's super macro!

note: true digital macros are defined (as per wiki) as having a 24mm height (32mm width for 4:3 sensors); as per that rule, even HS series super macros fall short.
