This is an extremely unscientific test, but it was striking nonetheless to see how much better the XF1 did than the old F30. I just took a handheld shot of my dad in poor lighting with both cameras with the F30 on Auto, EXR mode on XF1. Looking at these now, it seems that maybe the F30 didn't focus correctly, so I'd like to give it a second chance tonight.

Nice shot ... there is no surprise at all in the beating that the XF1 laid on the F30

Nothing is sharp on the F30 shot camera shake seems to be the problem

Yes the newer models have faster lenses so I'd expect them to do better in low light

They also have better JPEG engines, much more efficient sensors at M size and a slew of improved handling features ... plus of course far better lenses.

Other than that, though, it's close
