There was no 'fair' way to compare these cameras, but I did anyway, using the best settings for each in Program mode and shooting JPEGs only. I left the sharpening, NR, saturation and contrast set to defaults. Using a Manfrotto tabletop tripod from about 12 feet distance, I took several images with each camera, selecting the best of each (there were only a couple minor differences). The zoom/FL for the LF1 was 70 mm and for the GM1 it was 64 mm (maximum). The GM1 has a 16 to 12 MP advantage over the LF1, but the slight (70 to 64 mm) zoom advantage of the LF1 makes up a little bit of that. There's a perspective difference, partly due to inexact tripod placement, but I used autofocus to get the best sharpness on the grapefruits. The biggest difference I see between the images is the detail on the grapefruits. But looking at details elsewhere - the etching on the coffee cup, the lettering on the Leica box etc. - the LF1 does a remarkable job with those. Perhaps shooting in RAW the LF1 could avert the smearing on the grapefruits by applying a better noise reduction - don't know. f4.2, 1/15 sec., ISO 80. f5.6, 1/25 sec., ISO 200.
