Gosh darn it...! Now I will have to consider a G10 into my future purchase. It was so much easier a month ago when the 950 was the set to beat- no disrespect to the "Holy Grail," the soon to be extinct Elite Kuro,... it just wasn't impressive to me.
Anyway IMO, the G10 does have better black detail. On the other hand, the 7100 does seem to have the sharper, better contrast. Difference is slight, but when I look at the water in the daylight city shot- there seems to be a bit more texture/contrast. While the G10 shows more during the night city shot- buildings were more clear and defined and so are the streets. I will have to see these sets in person.
They are pretty damn close in PQ.
