Q vs K-7 - take the test!

One car with Pentax K-7/ 16-45 ISO 100, other with Pentax Q 8.5 prime Iso 100. The 3:2 aspect ratio was cropped to approx 4:3. Elements 8 was used to resize and sharpen (same amount) both images. No color correction at all. Which camera shot which image?
thanks

I'm going to guess the first is the Q and the second is the K-7.

I vote the same, in favor of some bokeh appearing on the second shot.

I vote the same, as shot #1 appears flatter, more like I'd expect from a good P&S.

For a fair comparison you should have taken the same pic with both cameras.

Neither of the images uses the prowess of a dslr.

+1

These are not interesting photos that will show us the difference between DOF, sensor size, etc.

I'm going to guess the first photo is the K7 because you shot it on auto and the K7 tends to underexpose.

OK, failing similar images and originals, I'm going to go for the 2nd pic being the Q as it has that horrible plasticy Exmor R small sensor feel that I get on my compact that uses an Exmor R sensor.. I'd be horrified if an APS-C DSLR produced an image like #2

I agree with the second image having the feel of a P&S, very hard for a DSLR to do
