Ricoh GXR: Corner Softness Samples A16 24-85 (New Lens)

Corners 24 mm | Corners 28 mm | Corners 35 mm | Corners 50 mm | Further Samples

On this page, I present corner softness comparisons for my second Ricoh GXR A16 24-85 camera unit that I received in exchange for my first unit. The first unit had been adjusted at the CONVAIR repair center in Pirmasens, Germany, however, without much success - at least, in my opinion.

Here, I present samples for the focal lengths of 24 mm, 28 mm, 35 mm, and 70 mm; the samples for 70mm and 85mm were too fuzzy to be presented here (I may repeat the shots later...).

I plan to provide a number of further samples with nature and architectural scenes, however, without systematically varying focal length (no sections, only overviews and original files).

While this new camera unit is not much better than my first one, the A16 24-85 camera unit has become my favorite unit at the moment (summer and autumn 2012), because of its versatility. I am only missing a somewhat langer zoom and a macro...

Note: I strongly recommend to download the original photos for a correct evaluation.

See also my page with samples from the original camera unit and the pages (page 1, page 2) with samples after an adjustment at the CONVAIR repair center in Pirmasens, Germany (added on June 3, 2012).

Further Samples

Here, I provide some further sample photos that demonstrate corner fuzziness (or softness) with some landscape scenes, however, without systematically varying focal length (no sections, only overviews and original files). Also note that in "natural scenes" fuzzy corners are less of a problem.

Note: The photos were not taken specifically to demonstrate corner performance.
