BTW, I also bought one of the Canon TX-1's that Cyril Catt uses . . . .

Thanks Erik - Some interesting comments are coming forward.

For me, if am comparing lens or IQ, I only trust careful tripod work, on a demanding studio scene (including a range of shadows) or careful tripod work on a real life subject.


Good point, different goal.

Since I rarely even consider using a tripod, considering the very, very effective Panasonic OIS, I leave the tripod tests to Jimmy Brown and Ian Perigian, who do such meticulous work that it's pointless to second-guess them.

For my own use, I like to use a "natural" scene - specifically with some very good contrast area to focus on, some fine foliage to see what sort of "smearing" occurs, ans a convenient place - so, my neighbor's pasture, although that poor, bored, horse messes it up so often 

The reasoning is to do tests in a fairly "ideal" version of the conditions in which I will be taking pictures, not an artificial setup which would not resemble my typical shot.

Just a different "take" on things, as usual - YMMV
