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!
