”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.”

The level of fine detail is amazingly good for an 8MP camera, better in fact than most 10MP models.


—-


The lens produces some barrel distortion at the wide-angle end, but it is not too severe.


—-


Sharpness is excellent at the centre of the frame.


—-


Corner sharpness is also very good, with minimal chromatic aberration.


—-


There is some pincushion distortion at the telephoto end, but again it isn’t too bad.
