Summary

Our Score:

8

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. Some other pictures may be clicked to view the original full-size image.

Here's the usual detail test shot of the West Window of Exeter Cathedral, for you to compare with other cameras. See below for a full res crop, or click to see the whole picture.

----

The level of fine detail is excellent despite the overcast weather, and the low compression rate preserves a lot of it.

----

The lens is nice and sharp, but there is some distortion at wide angle.

----

Centre sharpness is superb.

----

There is a little blurring in the far corners of the frame, and also some traces of chromatic aberration.
