”’A more general selection of test shots are revealed on this page and next to act as an evaluation of the Pentax K-r DSLR in a variety of shooting conditions with the 18-55mm zoom lens on test attached.”’
An example of the level of detail delivered when shooting at maximum wide angle setting on the kit zoom. Sharp detail from front to back of frame, some lovely colours and an even exposure. Those who wish to nit pick will find some pixel fringing evident around the branches top of frame, but overall this is very good showing indeed.
Zooming in from the same vantage point to show what the quality is like at the telephoto end of the same lens.
Sharpness is maintained when shooting handheld at maximum telephoto setting. Again we have an even exposure and colours that, if slightly warmer than some, still fall on the side of naturalistic.
Shot looking up at this imposing gate, detail is sufficient that one can pick out the peeling paint and areas of rusting. You really couldn’t hope for a much better performance from a kit zoom.
