Nikon D7000 - Test shots: Zoom, Contrast and Colour

Here are some general test shots taken with the Nikon D7000 and 18-105mm lens as stated to give an idea of performance ability when it comes to image quality, dynamic range, colour rendition and the focal range of the respective optic.

----

/94/d7538f/54a3/14777-exteriorduckscrop.jpg
This handheld daylight telephoto shot with the kit zoom reveals a pleasing level of detail in the ducks' feathers, as well as vibrant colour that doesn't stray away from being naturalistic at the same time.

----

/94/6cf1d7/bd4e/14777-nikond7000plasticduckcl.jpg
This close up telephoto shot reveals an attractively shallow depth of field and again the colour remains naturalistic whilst being flatteringly warm at the camera's default setting.

/94/310367/4a48/14777-nikond7000wideangleinte.jpg
By contrast a wide angle interior shot - again we have barrel distortion visible towards the edges of the frame with leaning verticals, but the eye is otherwise drawn to the central portion of the image and the fine flower detail picked up by the kit lens. Again some loss of highlight detail but otherwise plenty of punch and depth to the shot.

/94/a5d4ff/cbb1/14777-nikond7000signetscrop.jpg
This image of a pair of signets was a little flat straight out of the camera and is the only picture here that has been adjusted for levels to add a bit of contrast only. No chance of retrieving the missing highlight detail however.
