Just to confirm both of the submitted images were shot in RAW and converted to JPEG via LR4.4 export.

How large were the LR JPG exports? I wonder if you've created the JPGs at low quality.

(or, and I suppose a better question is, did the images look this bad in LR)

For reference, the "high quality" JPGs created by FZ200 are about 5mb each.

Also, did you have image stabilization on or off?


Images were exported at full quality (100) and the image stabilisation was on.

I'll try and post some more later if I get time

I took three sets of images at ISO 100, full W/A, A mode, on a tripod with self-timer. These are screenshots of 100% crops of the .RW2 viewed in Faststone.

Left to right:

#1 - f/2.8 with stabilization enabled

#2 - f/2.8 with stabilization disabled

#3 - f/8.0 with stabilization disabled

The f/8.0 image was much blurrier than either of the f/2.8 images. The stabilization seemed to do no harm.


Quite a difference. Maybe not that surprising considering that the FZ200 at f/8 has the same DoF and diffraction as a 12mp FF camera has at f/45 (wish that my SX50 was a bit faster than f/6.5 at the long end).
