/94/52e067/888e/10484-nikonl20wide.jpg

Again, this was shot on the L20, equivalent to 38mm. The L19 is slightly narrower, equivalent to 41mm.

----

/94/4147e8/5dcb/10484-nikonl20tele.jpg

The L20's telephoto end is equivalent to 136mm. Again the L19 is slightly narrower at 145mm.

/94/136ca0/ed63/10484-nikonl20colour.jpg

Default colour reproduction is rather garish and over-saturated. The yellow flowers (do I look like a botanist?) are just featureless blobs.

----

/94/736fb7/d2e9/10484-nikonl20contrast.jpg

Dynamic range on the L20 is poor, with little shadow detail. Oddly the L19 is not really any better.
