Pentax Optio E40 - 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.

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.

The new lens provides good detail, but it is swallowed up by the image noise even in this low-ISO shot.

The lens produces some barrel distortion at wide angle, but it's not too horrible.

Centre sharpness is good, but again image noise is visible in the darker areas.
