”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 pictures may be clicked to view the original full-size image.”
This is my standard test shot for digital SLRs, the seafront at Sidmouth. You can click on it image to see the full-sized version, or compare the crop below.
This image is taken from a PEF RAW file, converted using Adobe Camera Raw in Photoshop CS3, and then saved as a JPEG using minimum compression. Compare with the Nikon D80, Olympus E-510, Canon EOS 400D and Sigma SD14 among others.
The 1.5x conversion factor for the APS-C sensor means the 18mm wide-angle end of the kit lens is equivalent to 27mm on a 35mm system.
At full resolution the centre sharpness is a little soft as usual.
The corner of the frame is just as good, thanks to the excellent kit lens.
