Olympus mju 830 - Test shots - Full-res crops

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 level of detail is not significantly better than the mju 780.

The lens produces relatively little barrel distortion at wide angle. The horizontal and vertical lines in this picture are virtually straight. The two images below are crops from the centre and corner of this frame.

Sharpness is very good at the centre of the frame.

However there is quite bad corner blurring. Again compare this to the mju 780.

Pincushion distortion at the telephoto end is also minimal.
