”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.”
A scene taken at the widest setting of the lens at 38mm.
The same scene taken at the telephoto end of the lens at 108mm.
Colours are good but there’s some fringing along the edge particularly towards the top edge of the frame.
The Dynamic Range feature, on setting +2 shows a great level of detail across the image, where normally the detail of the sky or foreground would be lost.
This average scene shows excellent exposure at the default setting, though barrel distortion can be seen.
