“A more general selection of test shots are revealed on this page and next to act as an evaluation of the E-5 in a variety of shooting conditions with the 12-60mm (24-120mm equivalent) zoom lens on test attached.”
Up close and personal with our test lens to give a narrow depth of field but maintain detail where it matters, thus drawing the eye in.
By contrast a wider scene taken with the E-5 and supplied 12-60mm lens that displays softening of detail towards the corners. Plus also some pixel fringing where the branches of the tree are framed against a featureless sky top right hand of frame – even though such artefacts are only visible on particularly close scrutiny.
By contrast again, a shot taken handheld with the lens at the extreme telephoto end of the zoom, detail sufficient to pick up the subtle pattern of the duck’s feathers.
