As I have both cameras i was intrigued as to the comparative image quality. Just done a test shot from the same position, and converted to JPEG with only fill light added in Lightroom. Yes the colour cast is different but thats because the Sony was on DAYLIGHT and the Fuji was on AUTO WB. Shot at f5.6 ISO 200. The full jpegs were 5.8MB so wouldn't upload onto Flickr. The central crops are 327 kB for Sony, and 245kb for Fuji. Crop sizes are 929 x 395 for FUJI, and 1075 x 483 for SONY. The central point of focus is on the salt and pepper pots to the left. So, take a look and see what you think. Personally, i think the Sony holds up really well against a camera that is renowned for it's image quality. do remember, I'm not a camera or photography scientist, it's just a comparison of image quality and there has been no sharpening, or other adjustments from RAW except that mentioned, i.e. fill light. As I don't know how to post the pics on here the link is sony RAW central crop | Flickr - Photo Sharing! fuji RAW central crop | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
