”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 new lens provides good detail, but it is swallowed up by the image noise even in this low-ISO shot.
The lens produces some barrel distortion at wide angle, but it’s not too horrible.
Centre sharpness is good, but again image noise is visible in the darker areas.
Edge sharpness is also very good, with no chromatic aberration.
