I don't see a lot of punch difference, but the Astia is warmer with less shadow detail.

The shadow detail could be my imperfect PP lifting the shadows by eye to see what was in there

No, unlike the respective slide films, Astia has higher shadow contrast than Provia (standard) mode.

This turns out to be useful because Astia can be used on cloudy days to warm up scenery and increase contrast on dull days.

For this reason, unless you have controlled lighting, Astia might be bad for portraits - certainly not as good as the slide film was.
