Summary

Our Score:

8

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.

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 fine detail is very good, but it's not really much of an improvement on the P5000.

----

With the distortion control feature turned off, the lens does produce some barrel distortion at the wide angle end.

----

Switching distortion control on corrects this, and produces nice straight edges.

----

Centre sharpness is excellent thanks to the high quality lens.

----

With distortion control off there is some slight chromatic aberration visible toward the corners of the frame.

----

The distorion control appears to correct this, although it does nothing for the slight corner blurring.
