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.
Here's my usual detail test shot of the West Window of Exeter Cathedral, for you to compare with other cameras. See below for a full res crop, or click to see the whole picture.
Compare this with the results from the Fuji S8000fd and Panasonic FZ-18.
The level of barrel distortion at wide angle is quite a bit lower than the SP-550UZ.
Centre sharpness is excellent.
Corner sharpness is also much improved over the earlier model.
There is still some pincushion distortion at the telephoto end, but not quite as bad as the 550UZ.
