    I appreciate you keen eye and comments. Let me defend this GigaPan and the difficulty in the taking of it. The better hand-held image of the two, obviously, is the one taken with the SX110 instead of this one taken with a Leica D-Lux 3, and the reason is pretty easy to describe: The Leica is several years old and the LED screen is light years behind the LED screen of the SX110. Attaining the optimum focus with the Leica in direct blinding sunlight is very difficult as compared to correctly finding focus with the SX110. The Leica and the Canon are both excellent cameras under optimum conditions, but on top of this 14-story parking garage, I did not see optimum conditions.

    Interesting to compare the two. To my untutored eye, I'd say that for mid- and far-distance objects the sharpness is the same or better in this image, but foreground objects eg the blue light are better in the other image. This implies that your secret 'ultimate focus' technique doesn't work so well with the Leica, or you didn't use it. Or that the photographs are not directly comparable for some reason.
