/94/f919ac/9b18/5840-PentaxM40wide.jpg

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.

----

/94/5e92c6/128d/5840-PentaxM40tele.jpg

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

/94/2dcf14/9f1d/5840-PentaxM40colour.jpg

Exposure and colour rendition are good despite the overcast weather.

/94/ec9cc8/06ed/5840-PentaxM40contrast.jpg

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