Never make an assumption from early preproduction images. In addition to that, you can see the heat distortion. It's REALLY strong in those distant photos.

Anyone who's been around for a while remembers how early samples from the FZ200 looked absolutely terrible. Look at how people rate it now.

Heat distortion wouldn't account for the image being softer at f5.9 than f8.

Of course not, it's definitely affecting overall image quality of the distant shots. But think about what you're doing. Trying to make conclusions based on a few early samples. How do you know he even focused at the same distance?  Early sample photographers are notorious for turning out horrendous photos. From ALL manufacturers. We've been seeing it for YEARS!
