Summary

Our Score:

7

'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. File size 6.1MB.

----

The level of detail is very good for a budget camera, and the large file size of over 6MB saves most of it.

----

The lens does produce some barrel distortion at wide angle, but it's not too severe.

----

Centre sharpness is very good.

----

Corner sharpness is also good, with less chromatic aberration than on previous FE models.

Cliff has been working overtime coming up with so many reviews in such a short time.





Samsung WB2000/TL350 looks interesting, this should be the target of your forthcoming reviews. The image quality is comparable/close to those from LX3/5 and S90/95 except for the price.

OLYMPUS is a horrible brand with a pathetic after sales. I had bought an FE5050 camera on my trip to switzerland in Dec 2010. When I downloaded the pictures, it were all looking awful. I contacted OLYMPUS and dealer the second day but they are unwilling to do the refund. It is one month now I am chasing with no result. PLEASE DONT GET TRAPPED BY OLYMPUS. This is a horrible BRAND. Please note guys. Go for Canon or Sony or Nikon
