Most worthless site in the history of worthlessness, a P510 gets 98 while a FZ150 gets 64?

Image quality (sharpness of detail) for me is
the number one feature followed by color accuracy.  Your evaluations do not seem to include those
factors.  Your other technical
comparisons are worthy and I appreciate them.
