Summary

Our Score:

9

A range of test shots are shown over the next two pages. Here, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and in some case a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it in order for you to gain an appreciation of the overall quality.

----

The usual test shot of the cathedral window to compare detail and sharpness with other cameras. See below for a full-res crop or click to download the full-sized version.

----

The level of detail is very good, comparable with the best of the 10MP compacts.

----

The wide-angle end of the zoom range is equivalent to 36mm.

----

The telephoto end is equivalent to 126mm.

----

The lens is nice and sharp, but does produce some spherical distortion and wide angle.

----

Corner sharpness isn't bad though.

----

Shooting into the light, the exposure system has coped well with the difficult shot, and there is plenty of dynamic range.

----

Almost no purple fringing on this high-contrast edge.
