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.

----

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 for the full sized image. The downloadable file is approximately 3.6MB.

----

The level of fine detail is very good near the centre of the frame.

----

The lens does produce some barrel distortion at wide angle.

----

Centre sharpness is very good.

----

Corner sharpness isn't bad either, but there is quite a bit of chromatic aberration.

No viewfinder. It sucks.

As they don't address the problem of chromatic aberrations at all, I generally don't care much for Canon cameras. But nonetheless, I could recommend the A-6X0-series to anyone wanting a serious pocketable camera. It's really a shame to see what Canon have done to their A-series!
