Here's the all-too-familiar shot of the West Window for detail comparison. I take this same shot with every camera I test. Click on the image to see it full size or look at the 100 percent crop below.

The level of detail is excellent. Compare this with other 7MP or 8MP cameras I've tested recently.

----



At wide angle the lens does produce quite bad barrel distortion.

----



Corner sharpness is good, but that old purple fringing is back with a vengeance.

----



Here's a high contrast shot, a statue against a bright sky.

----



Here's a crop from the top part of the image. Check out the purple fringes.

----



The wide-angle end is equivalent to 38mm, which isn't very wide at all.

----



The telephoto end is equivalent to 380mm though, which is great for zooming in on details.
