”A range of general test shots are shown over the next two pages. In some cases, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it to show the overall image quality.”
The wide-angle end of the zoom is equivalent to 28mm, a lot wider than most comapacts, and great for panoramic shots. Again, there is no full-size download available due to file size limits.
The telephoto end of the zoom is equivalent to 100mm.
In good light the colour reproduction is excellent, but the shadows are a bit murky.
Again, a lack of shadow detail in this high-contrast shot, due to limited dynamic range.
Low-light focusing is very quick and accurate, and flash exposure and frame coverage is excellent.
