@ecmedia, i do think it is possible to be right on the edge of the panda penalty. I have one site that is there for sure. When it gets hit by a panda update it tends to be a 10-15% shot - not the nuclear blow that we have all heard tell of. Then, on the next update it can recover. Also, when the updates are rolling out through the data tiers, it can perform very well.
This particular site took a mild hit on June 8 and it is back to normal as of yesterday.
