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.

No cathedral window shot for the GR Digital II, since it doesn't have a zoom lens, but my favourite garden wall shows remarkably little distortion thanks to the excellent 28mm equivalent wide-angle lens.

----

Centre sharpness is very good.

----

Corner sharpness is also very good.

----

Considering this was shot hand-held at 1/3rd of a second on a camera with no image stabilisation it shows very little camera shake. Colour depth and saturation are excellent.

Thanks for an informative review - I too am wrestling with the idea of upgrading from my original GR Digital Mk1.





Presumably the MK1 accessories all still work with this newer design?

Yes, the GR Digital II has the same bayonet mount for the GW-1 and GT-1 accessory lenses, and the hot-shoe mounted GV-1 optical viewfinder works exactly as before.
