Boom Comparison: FZ70 Vs. GF2

Hi All,

I recently acquired a GF2 with a 14mm lens for a price almost too good to be true.  Since I just couldn't say no I now have 5 Lumix cameras and am learning the GF2.  I've traditionally gone the bridge camera route since I didn't want to get into buying more and more lenses.

The Civil War came to town last week, giving me a good opportunity to compare them head to head.  This is a boom captured by the GF2 in the highest burst mode.

Here's a very comparable photo with my FZ70.  Both shots are right from the camera.

Obviously I like the 20mm low end of the FZ70 but the GF2 just seems to have more depth and texture.  I find myself leaning more and more toward the GF2 even though extra lenses are a pain to carry around.

Other opinions? Recommendations?
