The BSI-CMOS sensor of the P7700 should feature a better signal/noise ratio over the "conventional" CMOS sensor of the G15 that we cannot notice in this comparison obviously. Is the advantage of BSI-CMOS sensor just marketing BS ? However it looks that it shows its superiority with purple fringing : the shorter distance between the micro-lenses and the photosites increases the tolerance to rays that do not hit the sensor perpendicularly. Unless it is the Nikon lens design that helps ?

I can think of 5-8 cameras I would buy over these 2. Never seen anybody young with these, not a good valve.

For sure, if young people (like you ?) mistake such a camera for a "valve" then I understand we cannot see them use it to take pictures...
So the question : Are young people skilled and trained in photography enough to evaluate a camera ?

No one young use these cameras because most can't afford them.
