Silly to present Nikon P7700 as better
« on: February 19, 2013, 09:00:46 pm »
This a comment for this page on the website
It has the same sensor, so your "advantages/disadvantages in tests" are just your own measurement errors, well within your margin of error (see your comparison of Fuji X10 and Fuji X-S1, Oly E-M5 and Oly E-PM2 - sensors and processors are the same, your ISO scores differ by 10-20%).
But P7700 has slower lens, chosen to be slower to provide longer zoom range. So the choice is do you want better 28-112 (XZ-2) or better 130-200 (P7700) for which you don't need to crop (113-120 or even more I guess as good or better on Oly even with a little crop due to faster lens at 112).

Thanks for your comment. It pretty much corresponds to our conclusion. Nikon takes the lead thanks to a wider ISO latitude but basically differences in IQ should not be noticeable on your final images (as noted in our comparison review).

It is worth noting that DxOMark sensor score only takes into account sensor quality.

Best regards,
