I shot a very quick set this morning with the HS50EXR, X-S1 & FZ200 in the same spirit of the first comparison set. In other words how I'd mostly use the camera in the real world...handheld.  I compensated for the HS50's focal length, and shot the X-S1 and FZ200 at full optical zoom.  In addition, I selected the aperture that look most sharp in this test for each camera.  For the Fuji's it was wide open, and for the FZ200 it was stepped down to F3.2.  I also included the FZ200 shot wide open at F2.8 for comparison.  In my rush, I didn't adjust properly for exposure as you'll see the images are a bit dim, although the sun had not fully his the chimney yet.  Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, I'm finding there are bits I like about each camera.  I guess in the end it will have to be which single camera checks the most boxes for me.

SOOC, Handheld, L Size, NR Low or -2, DR100 (Fuji)

I believe as was mentioned before, test pictures are too dark, and ISO is different on each camera, fz200 looks by miles best but ISO is lowest and X-S1 is ISO 800, I am not sure if fz200 will have chance with same high ISO...
