”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.”


The wide-angle end of the zoom range is equivalent to 37.5mm, which is not very wide at all.


The telephoto end of the zoom range is equivalent to 112.5mm, but at least the dynamic range is pretty good.


Colour rendition is very good, but the corners of the frame are a bit dark.


Contrast and dynamic range are also good, with both shadow and highlight detail in this high-contrast shot.
