I take it that if Cole would redo the test and make sure that the subject is clear in focus, they will have similar IQ.

I agree they will likely be very similar - we're all trying to squeeze blood from a turnip with these small sensors.

From the crops I have posted, HS50 yielded better result (opposite of the other crops).

Just because you can find select areas where the FZ200 was not focused you can't claim superior resolve because you're comparing an accidental/erroneous HS50 focal plane to the actual/desired focal plane.  My point is that you can't validly make a "better result" claim when the HS50 didn't focus where intended.  That in itself should signify a failure for the HS50.  [I admit that it could be due to a bad camera sample.]
