That's very useful comparison! And with the surprising results. In each scenario of your comparison the "cropped" ZS100 picture is visibly worse. Just the contrast and sharpening is higher, and actually making the results even worse. So, small-sensor or not, for high zoom pictures such cameras are still best. And I think (though have no experience) that a camera like FZ200/300 might be even better choice.

Thanks for that. As I said in my conclusions, for the TZ100: “Up to what amount of iZoom is acceptable would depend on personal preferences and requirements.”

Personally, for my own purposes I decided that, as I said: “ it seemed that iZoom with the TZ100 at 400mm should be acceptable for limited use, and possibly occasionally even up to about 450mm EFL.” But as they say, “Your Mileage May Vary”.

Ian
