This week, I have mostly been in Italy. This was taken at the 36mm-equivalent wide-angle end of the zoom range.
The 5x zoom lens has a telephoto end equivalent to 180mm, good for zooming in on details.
Flash metering is good, but the range isn’t all that great.
This shot demonstrates macro performance and colour reproduction, both of which are pretty good.
I know someone who named their son Harley. Some highlights are clipped on this high-contrast shot, but the shadow detail isn’t too bad.
