Close to the centre of the frame, the level of sharpness and fine detail is impressive.

/94/3edc49/ebf2/7005-SonyH9barrel.jpg

The "Carl Zeiss" lens produces horrible barrel distortion at the wide angle end, and the shot is also slightly over-exposed.

----

/94/628a96/6281/7005-SonyH9barrelcrop1.jpg

Centre sharpness is good, but you can see traces of chromatic distortion even here.

----

/94/6ec2f9/c12f/7005-SonyH9barrelcrop2.jpg

The cyan and green fringes here are caused by chromatic aberration, the lens not focusing all colours at the same point.

/94/b03bb6/5fe8/7005-SonyH9pincushion.jpg

At the telephoto end, pincushion distortion squeezes in the sides of this shot.
