    I CBA reading the rest of this forum...
    Basically What ken's experiment was
    NOT setting 2 cameras to the same exposure setting, Even if you did this test with a Canon 500D and a Nikon D90 the results would be different...

    The experiment was to EXPOSE ACCURATELY even if the camera was 5 stops lower then the P&S

    At the end of the day, It was the final result he was comparing of 2 accurately exposed images
    the reason ken doesn't use a large aperture in the test is cause P&S cannot shoot as quick as a DSLR so he used a middle Aperture

    not set 2 cameras to the EXACT SAME (which you haven't, Your EV on the compact may be different from the DSLR etc..) values
    But expose the images correctly and compare the reuslts in terms of sharpness, Colour, bokeh etc...

    This one is easy. Either he's an idiot or he's in on the take from Nikon. He'll deny both but I'm sure both apply.

    Because it's a Lecia man!

    I agree but I simply gave up reading anything on his site.

    Here's a question. Why did you resurrect this thread 6 months after it has died a well deserving death? Although thank you. I never did see DScience's response to my point. I am talking about scientific validity and he is bringing up how different the experiments were for both cameras. Good laugh.
