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.

I try to take the same test shot with every DSLR, for a more useful comparison. Unfortunately it was a bit hazy when i took this, but not too much to guage the level of detail.

----



Despite the haze, the high level of detail in this full-res crop is still visible. Compare this with my other 10MP DSLR reviews. Look particularly at the window frames on the hotel.

----



The D40x does a particularly excellent job with close ups, focusing quickly despite the close range.

----



This is a full-res crop from the above image. The detail and colour are stunning.

----



The kit lens supplied with the D40x is surprisingly good, better than most basic standard zooms, producing very little distortion at wide angle.

----



This was shot at full zoom on the 18-55mm lens....

----



...while getting closer but using the wide end of the range produces this effect.

----



This is a crop from the corner of the wide-angle shot above, showing the excellent corner sharpness and lack of distortion.
