Compared to... Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3
(@ full resolution and downsized to 6MP)

Below you will find a studio comparison between the Fuji FinePix F200 EXR and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

Because the difference in resolution is so great between the Panasonic and the pixel-binned F200 output, we have also resized the Panasonic image for more direct comparison.

At ISO 1600 the differences between the two cameras are reduced but there's still no obvious advantage to the F200's EXR technology over the LX3's well-sorted conventional CCD.
