User Score:

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 wide angle end of the zoom is equivalent to 36mm, which is wider than average for a compact, but the lens distortion is a problem.

----

The pincushion distortion at the telephoto end is visible in this shot, pinching in towards the middle of the frame.

----

Exposure and colour rendition are good despite the overcast weather.

----

This is about as much contrast as I could find. The shadow details are little murky.
