The HS50 really struggles. Quite surprising ...

If you bring up the HS' saturation in post to match the F900, will it be equally noisy - in particular the F900's yellow at ISO1600+3200?

They are all at default settings with no tweaking in this test ....

Yes, you already stated that - what I am asking, based on my inability to judge it myself, is if the fading colours of the HS could be brought up to the level of the F9, and, if they were, whether the noise then would reach or exceed that of the F-images or stay reasonable.

I think I'll need to do a 1:1 test of the F900 against the HS50 at different settings combinations. That is the only way to get a handle on these issues ...

Otherwise I cannot from the current images judge if the differences are due to hardware or software (whether fuji chose to deal different with noise/high iso in the two cameras); and while I understand your test do not attempt to reveal that I find it important (to the extent pixelpeeping is important for these cameras) as one thing cannot be remedied while the other (perhaps) can.

Well, in JPEG terms, hardware and software issues are the same thing. When I crack the RAW issue, we will get to see how well the sensor performs without the JPEG engine.
