Ricoh R8 - Test shots - Detail and lens perfomance

Our Score:


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 the 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 level of fine detail is very good, thanks mainly to the excellent lens.


Even at its 28mm-equivalent wide angle, the R8's lens produces almost no distortion.


Centre sharpness is very good.


Corner sharpness is also excellent.
