”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.
Unfortunately this shot was taken using the digital anti-shake mode, which has sett the ISO level to 400. Image quality at lower ISO settings is much better as you’ll see below.
The SMC Pentax 3x zoom lens produces relatively little distortion at wide angle.
Sharpness at the centre of the frame is excellent, and at 100 ISO there is much better quality.
Edge sharpness is also very good, with barely a hint of chromatic aberration.
