Canon EOS-350D / Digital Rebel XT purple fringing comparison

 
To measure purple fringing caused by lens chromatic aberrations and sensor blooming, we photographed a custom test chart, left, with areas of very high contrast. We used the bundled lenses at their widest and longest focal lengths with the aperture wide open in Aperture Priority mode. The crops are taken from the upper left corner of the chart and presented here at 100%.

The 350D with the 18-55mm EF-S lens exhibits purple fringing at its widest position, but no worse than its rivals. Fringing is virtually absent at the 55mm end, again in line with the competition.

Canon EOS-350D / Digital Rebel XT macro comparison

Canon 350D / Rebel XT macro test   To measure macro performance we photographed a custom chart using the bundled lenses at a distance and focal length which delivered the maximum possible reproduction. The dark lines are 10mm apart.

The image left was taken with the Canon EOS-350D and the 18-55mm EF-S lens at f8. Like other budget digital SLR lenses, the best macro performance was achieved using its longest focal length of 55mm. Here the lens captured an area measuring 66x44mm from a distance of 13cm. This is essentially the same as the competition, although superior to Konica Minolta.
