”This page consists of resized images so that you can evaluate the overall exposure.
Full-sized versions of some of the following images can be downloaded in a new window by clicking on the sample shots as indicated. However be aware that the average file size is around 3MB, so those on very slow connections will experience some delay.”
Colour rendition is good, despite shooting into the light.
Again shooting into the low-angled sunlight, the M30’s exposure system has coped well producing a good image with plenty of rich colour.
Although the exposure is good and the colours are well-saturated, this shot shows bad purple fringing around the highlights. See the crop below for more detail.
This is a crop from the upper left of the above image, showing more clearly the large purple fringes.
