”Here are some general test shots to help evaluate the camera’s overall image quality, including dynamic range, colour rendition and the zoom range of the lens. Some pictures may be clicked to download the full size original image. ”
The wide angle end of the zoom range is equivalent to 24mm, ideal for panoramic scenes. This is a birdlife research station on the Ebro Delta in Catalonia.
Taken from the same spot as the above shot, this shows the 360mm-equivalent telephoto end.
The dynamic range is pretty good even without the ACB feature.
With ACB switched on the shadow detail is greatly improved.
The powerful zoom and excellent image stabilisation are great for a bit of birdwatching.
This is a full-size crop from the above image.
Colour reproduction is superb. This is a sunset over the Ebro Delta.
