Just came across having two similar photo one with a Panasonic G1 + 45~200 and the other with a Canon SX50HS, can you tell the difference under real world usage?

Not sure what you are trying to get at, Donald?

With very good lighting and no motion, and with small images like these, it would be hard to tell the difference between any P&S camera and the G1 (which is 5 years old). Except in this case, you need a long FL to get this particular shot.

I think " real world usage" includes taking photos under much harsher lighting conditions and printing bigger prints. Otherwise everybody will be using a superzoom. The fact is however that even the best current model superzoom (the FZ200 or the SX50) has noisy images even at their lowest ISO. A current model M43 camera, except for the Panasonic ones, can all produce images with virtually no noise until ISO 1600.
