A range of general test shots are shown over the next two pages. In some cases, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it to show the overall image quality.

Here's my usual DSLR test shot of Sidmouth seafront for comparison with other cameras. Click on the image to download a full-size version, but be aware that the file is nearly 8MB.

Here's a crop from the above image. If you compare it with the next-highest resolution DSLR that I've tested, the Pentax K20D, you'll see the difference the 21MP full-frame sensor makes.

In basic JPEG mose the dynamic range may not look too impressive, but in Raw mode it is possible to pull out a huge amount of extra shadow and highlight detail.

The camera also came with a remarkable f/1.2 85mm lens, with which I was able to take this unusual shot, which also demonstrates the superb colour depth.
