”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 my 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.
The overall sharpness and detail are very poor, not helped by the 200 ISO automatic setting.
Despite a wide end equivalent to 38mm, the lens produces significant barrel distortion.
Centre sharpness is quite poor.
Edge sharpness is even worse.
At the telephoto end the lens produces quite bad pincushion distortion.
