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 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 downloadable file is approximately 3.0MB.


The level of detail is excellent, but the harsh compression and sharpening leaves it looking over-processed.


The lens produces very little wide-angle distortion.


Centre sharpness is excellent.


There is some blurring and chromatic aberration in the far corners of the frame.


The horizon is almost straight in this extreme telephoto shot. The sea was very choppy, but a fisherman has to earn his living whatever the weather.
