    Here's my favorite test shot, for the Q this time. JPEG only, defaults, using 28/35/50 framing, auto-exp., ISO 200, auto-WB, IS=ON, auto-focus on bird, held in hand but braced against a table. The exposure changed slightly (and no.2 looks slightly out of focus), but after looking at these at 100 percent I can see that the crop is very clean and nothing seems to be lost except the cropped-off portions. There's a lot of daylight coming from a window behind the camera, but because of the overhead light seen here, the camera kept setting the auto-WB color redder or warmer on the 28 mm framing only. I wonder about the lack of clarity on no.2, insofar as older cameras with in-lens IS/VR warned to turn off the IS when the camera was on a tripod or otherwise physically stabilized. But since I always shoot bursts unless doing a time exposure, I won't worry about it.

    Late yesterday I made a series of shots at the 50 mm crop, which yields a 7.5 mp image, and compared them to side-by-side shots I made with the Leica D-Lux 4/3 camera, with its lens zoomed to 50 mm and image size set to 3x2 format (12.2 mp). The D-Lux images looked much better when resized down to match the Q camera crops, which surprised me. Anyway, there was no magic to be had in that test.
