Nick, the clear winner is the Panny due to the clearest images in your test. I own the FZ150; it's a peach [=great!] of a camera. Owners of the FZ200 often state that the 150 bests the 200 so you might consider that; I plan to add the 200 when the price decreases.

I own several from the HS series [ all but the HS50].  I wouldn't trade my 150 for all of my HS Fujis.

As you said, you're shooting in the real world. Go with what works best for you and don't let anyone talk you into something that you might later regret, even myself.

Thanks Frank.  One of the concerns I have is the FZ's dynamic range.  In shooting the camera this weekend, I found myself blowing out the highlights in a few shots despite dialing in  - EV.  I've read some complaints about JPEG noise as the ISO creeps up, but with the FZ's fast lens, and no plans to shoot this camera indoors much, I'm not overly concerned.  What has your experience been?

Shoot in RAW and why won't you use it indoor? It should give you an advantage in using low ISO or fast shutterspeed than HS50 and X-S1.
