”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 angle end of the zoom is equivalent to 37mm, not really wide enough for panoramic landscapes.
The telephoto end is equivalent to 148mm, better than average for zooming in on details.
The exposure meter tends to burn out highlights in favour of shadow detail. Dynamic range is rather limited too.
