”A range of test shots are shown over the next two pages. Here, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and in some case a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it in order for you to gain an appreciation of the overall quality.”

This is a crop from near the centre of the previous image. The level of detail is quite poor for a 7MP camera.
The 3x zoom lens on the E30 isn’t too bad, producing relatively good edge-to-edge sharpness and only slight barrel distortion.
This is a corner crop from the previous image, showing the lack of corner blurring.
