The 28mm-equivalent wide-angle is great for wide panoramic scenes of the local bus station. Not to worry though, as soon as the economy picks up theyr’re going to demolish it and build another large, ill-conceived and unpopular shopping centre, because heaven knows we just cant get enough expensive fashion boutiques.


The 200mm-equivalent telephoto end can zoom right in on this strange little shop, which always feels overcrowded even if you’re the only one in there.


Just to be contrary, the R10 actually has excellent dynamic range, with plenty of shadow and highlight detail in this high-contrast shot.


Colour reproduction is bright and vivid, but if you want it to be accurate you’d better use manual white balance.


There is a strange red tint along the top edge of this frame, most likely another white balance problem.
