Lab re­sults

Amateur Photographer - - Testbench - An­drew Sy­den­ham’s lab tests re­veal just how the cam­era per­forms Our cam­eras and lenses are tested us­ing the in­dus­try­s­tan­dard Image En­gi­neer­ing IQ-Anal­yser soft­ware. Visit www.image-en­gi­neer­ for more de­tails.

With its Four Thirds sen­sor and fast zoom lens, the LX100 II gives ex­cel­lent image qual­ity for a fixed-zoom com­pact. Its 17MP res­o­lu­tion is suf­fi­cient to make de­tailed A3 prints, and when shoot­ing at low ISOs, there’s plenty of lat­i­tude in the raw files to pull ex­tra de­tail out of the shad­ows. Its high ISO per­for­mance is also very good, with files be­ing quite us­able – if vis­i­bly noisy – at ISO 6400. Take into ac­count the large-aper­ture lens, and there’s a case to be made that it will of­fer con­sis­tently high qual­ity across a wider range of con­di­tions than any of its peers.
