I haven’t taken this shot in a while, but Exeter’s horrible old bus station is still there for now. It’s due to be demolished soon though. The wide angle end of the zoom is equivalent to 35mm, fractionally wider than the P5000 thanks to the difference in sensor size.


The telephoto end is equivalent to 123mm, again slightly shorter than the P5000.


Colour reproduction is excellent.


Despite strong lighting the highlights have not been burned out.


The superb handling of the P5100 encourages you to use it to take photos of just about everything.
