Comparing Carl Zeiss lenses: Nokia Lumina 900 vs. Sony Cybershot

I am now the proud owner of a new smartphone: The Nokia Lumina 900 running Windows Phone 7.5. The primary reason for the upgrade is the fact that it has a Carl Zeiss lens, which like my point & shoot camera does (a Sony Cybershot DCS-W350).

The Nokia has an 8 megapixel camera with a fixed 28mm Carl Zeiss lens.

The Sony is a 14.1 megapixel camera with a 26mm 4x optical zoom Carl Zeiss lens.

To compare the two cameras, today at 7:53am I took a photo outside, it was cloudy (as you can see), there was no flash and I had the cameras set to "auto" for everything. That’s roughly how I will take pictures most of the time, so for me, it’s a fair test. Here’s the results:
