I'm shocked. There really isn't a big difference between either one. Having read many times that the 45-200 is not that great at max FL I am amazed.

The same has been said of the 100-400L IS.

Although as you said it is not a controlled test, I think it is pretty representative of real world usage of the equipment. I am curious what shutter speeds were used? If they are within the range that you could reasonably expect a sharp pic given the use of IS then you have made a very valid comparison.

The 5D was 1/250 and the GF1 was 1/200, which is pretty close. Both are in the range where IS should be able to handle it, and I think represent real-life conditions.

Thanks for the test and the info.
