Once more we can see a difference in exposure between the two cameras, the F707 image appearing darker than the F717, that said the actualy brightness appears unevenly on the F707 image (odd). The next item of interest is the difference in colour response for blue and green, both of which are definitely more more accurate and less saturated on the DSC-F717. Note how the F707 completely saturates the red crayon but that the F717 maintains detail and keeps the saturation under control.
