It’s a shame I can’t post the full-sixed version of this; the colour depth is stunning.
Dynamic range is surprisingly limited for a DSLR. Highlight detail is quite good, but there are some murky shadows.
Shooting in Raw mode it is possible to recover some shadow detail, but not much before noise becomes a problem.
The high-speed autofocus and virtually instantaneous shutter release are great for capturing action shots.
