Taken at the 25mm end of the lens to capture the wide vista.
Taken from the same position as the previous image, but at the 400mm end of the lens.
There's plenty of sharp detail here.
Chromatic aberration is kept well under control.
I focussed manually here, using the focus peaking display to tell me when the top of the stamen was sharp.
Despite the bright sky and subject the Multi metering system has delivered a well exposed image.
The AF system is fast enough to get moving subjects sharp and keep them sharp as subject distance changes provided the active AF point is in the correct place.
In Panorama mode the camera is panned to include the whole scene and the results generally look good.
Using HDR mode has enabled every last bit of cloud detail to be retained and put more detail in the shadows, however, the green leaves in the field look a little too vibrant.
Using the Vibrant Photo Style has over-saturated the grass in this shot.
Using the Scenery Photo Style has produced a better result.
The long reach of the lens is useful for candid photography.
