The overall colour reproduction is very good, except for the oddly mottled appearance of mid-tone and darker blues.

Yes, it’s my car again. I’m not showing off, it’s just really good for high contrast shots. Thanks to limited dynamic range highlights are burned out, and shadow areas are featureless black.

Not a particularly exciting shot, but it was taken hand-held and the maximum zoom setting equivalent to 432mm, at a shutter speed of 1/20th of a second. That’s some outstanding image stabilisation.
