interesting little test though. we had some fun, their was a spider web under the green letter box 100m away a single strand and both could resolve it . but you are right the contrast was exceptional on the d7000 its a shame i threw away the originals i would have posted the spider web. not bad for a $400 camera compared to a $10,000 rig.

my mate did buy the fz150 after the test and half the bird club and are loveing their new toys. with excelent results. he hasnt used his nikon he said since the fz arrived.
since then we have finely tuned these fz's and edged even closer.

It just like HiFi the law of diminishing returns is in full force

a £100 camera is not 10 time worse (barely 2x) than a £1000 and again £10,000 doesn't get you much improvement at all.

For a purchaser the same truth holds, Don't spend where you personally see little or no improvement.

cheers don
