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.

This is the shot I usually take to test digital SLRs. Compare this with some previous reviews of 10MP cameras such as the Nikon D80 or the Canon EOS 400D.

As you can see there isn't a big gain in overall detail going from 10 to 12 megapixels, but the overall quality is superb.

/94/d1ce80/906b/5956-SonyA700roof.jpg

Using the Carl Zeiss T* 16-80mm lens, the edge-to-edge detail is superb, and the Dynamic Range Optimiser (DRO) has ensured a good balance between highlight and shadow.

This is a crop from the centre of the above image.

Edge detail is just as good.
