FZ1000 compared to Micro Four-thirds
6

With the FZ200, I've found that one weakness is certain types of landscapes, where foliage at a distance is not resolved too well. In these situations, I continued to use my m4/3 system.

The FZ1000 gives much better results in these types of scenes, and it compares favorably with the m4/3.

In comparing, I am interested in how they look when printed to 8x10, so I examine the images at about 50-55%.

Here are a few examples. I used my favorite m4/3 lenses, Panasonic 20mm f/1.7, and Panasonic-Leica 45mm f/2.8. These were photographed on a recent trip to the Southern Sierra Nevada and Kern River Valley, California.

The FZ1000 focal length was adjusted to match the m4/3 20mm (=40mm) and 45mm (=90mm) lenses.

I've included two flower photographs to compare closeup and macro.
