”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 range is equivalent to 32mm. Nothing in the natural world should be the colour of that sky.
The telephoto end is equivalent to 96mm. Contrast and sharpness are quite poor.
Dynamic range is very limited, resulting in black featureless shadows.
Colour rendition somehow manages to be both garish and under-saturated at the same time.
