Found something interesting. Photographed this in low light. One with my K3 and the other with my Olympus XZ-10 P&S. The K3 was at F4 and ISO 4000. The XZ-10 was F2.4 at ISO 800 pushed 1.5 stops. Can you tell which is which?

Great test, proving that viewing web sizes isn't quite as taxing as large prints. Also, the shots aren't in identical perspective, and the second is a tighter crop. With all that said, I'd say the 2nd is the Oly, because it lost more highlights and lacks the shadow detail of the first, and despite being a tighter shot, still doesn't have as much detail as the first pic.

Thanks, bobbotron! I'm not really a fan of long exposures, but it was the perfect place to test my new tripod.

Yep, this isn't scientific at all. It's just 2 cameras taking photos of the same subject showing that simple cameras can do okay for everyday. I love both but and they both have their place. I think the little Oly has the same sensor as the Q. I could be wrong though.
