”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.

I always take my cathedral window comparison shot from the same location, zoomed in to approximately the same magnification, but unfortunately the LZ3’s 60mm maximum zoom is too wide to get the same view. Still, here’s the shot anyway.
Despite the lower magnification and the overcast day, the LX3 has still captured a lot of fine detail, more than most 10MP cameras.
The Leica lens produces almost no barrel distortion despite its 24mm wide angle end.
Centre sharpness is outstanding.
Corner sharpness is just as good, with no chromatic aberration, although that may be due to image processing.
