Summary

Our Score:

7

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.

----

Compression artefacts and excessive sharpening have reduced the level of visible detail, a shame because the lens is capable of better results.

----

There is very little barrel distortion at wide angle.

----

Centre sharpness is good, although some of that is due to artificial sharpening.

----

There is some chromatic aberration, but corner sharpness is pretty good too.
