”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.”
Here’s my usual detail test shot of the West Window of Exeter Cathedral, for you to compare with other cameras. Unfortunately the full-size shot is over our 5MB download limit, so you’ll have to compare the crop below.
The level of detail is amazingly high. Compare this shot with the 12mp Panasonic FX100.
As you can see, the lens produces very little barrel distortion at wide angle. Unfortunately however the AiAF system decided to focus on the garden behind this wall, which I didn’t notice until it was too dark for a re-shoot. I’ll update with the centre and corner sharpness pics tomorrow.
At the maximum telephoto setting the lens does produce a little pincushion distortion, but not much.
