At ISO 400 the effects of noise - and noise reduction - have taken their toll on both images (although again it is obvious the FZ5 is retaining more fine detail). The H1 image has lower luminance noise, and the noise reduction is much less obvious - the Panasonic image has a distinctive 'watercolor' appearance. On the other hand there is visible color noise in the H1 image, as well as a slight softness, but the results are not terrible for a camera in this class (the 5MP chip being notoriously noisy at ISO 400).
