Because the difference in resolution is so great between the Canon and the pixel-binned F200 output, we have also resized the Canon image for more direct comparison.

As the earlier noise tests suggested, the sensor-size advantage of the F200 EXR is enough to show-up the Canon. Despite operating at a lower resolution, the F200EXR is able show more fine detail than the Canon can. Downsizing (with sharpening), the Canon's output appears to narrow the difference but the image is still soft and suffers from poor contrast in comparison to the F200's bright and still-detailed image. So, while the F200 may not offer any great improvement over the F31fd, it's still very capable when compared to some of its peers.
