”Here are some general test shots to help evaluate the camera’s overall image quality, including the zoom range of the lens. Some pictures may be clicked to download the full size original image. ”
The wide end of the zoom range is equivalent to 36mm, not terribly wide when compared toe the 28mm wide end on the Panasonic TZ5.
The telephoto end is equivalent to 360mm, great for zooming in on the details.
Colour reproduction is excellent, with plenty of detail even in the saturated areas.
Good dynamic range provides a nice balance between shadow and highlight detail.
