Our Score:


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.
