Here's my usual DSLR test shot of Sidmouth seafront for comparison with other cameras. Click on the image to download a full-size version, but be aware that the file is 5.6MB.

Compare this with similar shots from the Canon EOS 500D or Nikon D5000. As you can see the A500 acquits itself well against its rivals.

A quick dose of Adobe Camera Raw soon fixes the minor CA problem.
