”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 very good, but really no better than the S5700.

The lens produces some wide-angle barrel distortion, but it disappears quickly at slightly longer focal lengths.

Centre sharpness is pretty good for a £120 camera.


—-


There is some corner blurring at the widest setting, but more worrying it Fuji’s arch-nemesis, purple fringing.
