”’There are no ISO test images this week, because the Nikon Coolpix has no manual adjustment for ISO setting.”’
Under good natural light, and shooting a relatively low contrast subject, the L4 produces very good results, with accurate focus and exposure, and a minimum of corner blurring at wide angle.
Shooting under more difficult circumstances, this high contrast shot suffers from lack of shadow detail and badly burned out highlights.
At the widest angle setting the L4’s lens does produce quite significant barrel distortion. The vertical beams here are supposed to be straight and parallel, as are the brick courses.
