K5IIs vs Nokia 1020

Hi Team,

Recently I have acquired a K5IIs, Sigma 17-50 and a new smart phone, the Nokia 1020.

I went for a drive the other day north of Perth and took a few snapshots. Here are a couple of flower shots from the k5 and Nokia, with heavy crops to show detail.

Its not scientific and it's NOT designed to start a discussion about smart phones taking over DSLR's, but it is an example of how good the Nokia is and as an extra photographic tool in the pocket, its fantastic as a back up. The high res files are up around 10mb and the image quality blew me away.

A couple of flowers and almost 100% crops for your interest??
