Pentax Optio M60 - Test Shots - Detail and lens performance

Summary

Our Score:

8

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.

----

The level of detail is very good towards the middle of the frame.

----

The lens produces relatively little barrel distortion at wide angle.

----

Centre sharpness could be better, and there is some distortion and chromatic aberration.

----

There is quite a bit of blurring in the corners of the frame.

You gave the M50 8/10, but this M60 gets 7/10 for image quality. Is the lens and hardware all that different?

Can you recommend something similar (or not too much more expensive) which *isn't* glacially slow to autfocus? I am looking for a cheap-ish compact, don't need any bells or whistles, but the one crucial feature is that it must be able to focus (relatively well, even in low-ish light) fairly quickly. My wife's main complaint with our first digital (a Canon S45) was that, by the time it had focussed and taken the shot, the subject had moved.

Casio's ultra-compacts are excellent value for money, and have very fast autofocus.
