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 the usual test shot of the west window of Exeter cathedral to compare detail and sharpness with other cameras. See below for a full-res crop or click to download the full-sized version.


Despite the grey overcast day the FX500 has managed to capture a lot of fine detail.


The Leica-branded lens produces virtually no wide-angle barrel distortion - or is it all done in processing?


Centre sharpness is very good.


Corner sharpness is also good, with minimal chromatic aberration.
