Sony 10-18mm, Fuji 10-24mm, Panasonic 12-32mm and Nokia 1020 compared.

This is a very simple, very quick comparison between ny Nokia Lumia 1020 Smartphone and three mirrorless cameras fitted with wide-angle zooms.

Sony a6000 + 10-18mm zoom
Panasonic GX7 + 12-32mm zoom
Fuji X-T1 + 10-24mm zoom

Files are OOC jpgs. at base ISO and standard settings. The Nokia and Sony files have been downsized to match the Fuji and Panasonic. Files are available for download. (Please note this will be for a limited time. I need all my Cloud space for other things and I have in fact deleted all previous samples available on Google Drive.)

A few observations however. 

The Nokia looks different to the others in terms of colour balance. However, it's the only one that's right and got the colour balance correct. 

There is some highlight burnout on the Nokia file. 

In order of centre sharpness the files are:-
1. Sony a6000
2. Nokia 1020
3. Panasonic GX7
4.(And by some distance) Fuji X-T1.

Make of this what you will. I did it to see just how the Nokia compared. I think you can see for yourself what the answer to that is.
